38 (VZh) ami vɤ̀lnata ìma li razlìčni imenà v zavìsimost ot tovà otkədè
So does wool have different names depending on where

39 (VZh) še jə ostrižèš znàči dalì še e ot nogàta na ofcàta
you shear it from? Like if it’s from the sheep’s leg?

40 (a) à rəzlìčno sàmu dènu e pò̝ kàlenkə nɛ̀kədɛ nàa
Oh! It’s different only where it’s more muddy. Those parts –

41 (a) mò də je ə izberèš pò zə f nɛ̀kvu pò̝ pròstu də pràiš
you can choose them for – to make something more simple.

42 (a) pəg dènu zə hùbəvu nɛ̀štu zə blùzi zə ednò drùgu
But for something nice – for blouses or for something else [like that] –

43 (a) č'e pə gl'ɔ̀dəš pò hùbəfkənə izbìrəš'
you’ll look and find the nicer parts.

46 (VZh) ama n'àma drùgo ìme tovà da mu vìkate bəžɛ̀k tùkə na tàa
But isn’t there some other name that you call it, like “hip” for this here –

47 (a) bəžɛ̀ci ìnače ta agà e nɛ̀kvu kàl'enu də e kàl'enu
“Hips”, well that’s when it’s sort of muddy – a muddy [part]

48 (a) ud ufcɔ̀nə təgà mòe də je də ustàiš' nɛ̀kəde
of the sheep and you can leave it somewhere,

49 (a) màlku pò pəràtkəu pə əgà zə hàli̥šte gu iskàvəme prepisàci
for something less good. But when we weave rugs and aprons,

50 (a) sìčku nə ədnò mɛ̀stu rəš'č'èš'eš' i sə nəvlàč'i
everything in one place. You comb it and it gets carded,.

51 (a) i stàne hùbəvu
and it turns out nice
