Thank you everyone for your response to my question about "enough" hours 
of recorded speech for language documentation and about different things 
to record.  Responses ranged from specific hourly minima and discourse 
types to technical recommendations about video and multiple microphones 
to insights based on personal experience in endangered language 
communities.  Thank you all for your diverse perspectives.

In all I've received 19 responses in the last three days.  I've pasted 
them all into a Google document, which you should be able to read here:

If you have trouble with this link, or if you'd like your post to be 
removed from the document or revised, please e-mail me off-list.
