transcribing equipment for natural conversation. The following people

Henry Rogers (Toronto)
Margaret Luebs
David Graddol (UK)
Janet Holmes (Wellington, NZ)
Bert Peeters (Hobart, Tasmania)
Celso Alvarez-Caccamo

Most people strongly recommended SONY Professional Walkman WM-DC6 (with
lapel microphone SONY ECM 144, which, however, may not be used for
One person recommended a stereo portable recorder with Dolby

Germany, about 1300,- DM). In addition to this recorder, one can use a
Headset microphone TOA HY3 (for constant distance of mouth to microphone).
ANCHOR AN1000X was recommended as an independently powered loudspeaker for
One person recommended a query to a different list (LLTI),
which I have not tried yet.

Thank you very much to all who offered their advice. If anyone else wants
