ImageAbout This Case File: This file has gone through follow-up and the Anaphora Sketch (Aziza and Safir, 2005) has been written for it. The AQR was revised in November, 2008. At present, all tones are missing for it, though in most instances, all four example fields are filled. The anaphora sketch needs some revision, but this will not happen soon. The contents of the AQR have been entered into the Anaphora Database.
