4. Problems We Had To Overcome

?.It is difficult to translate the proper noun: When We visit the old master in our village , we use vernacular to communicate with each other.It is very easy for children who grow from the countryside to talk with vernacular. The master express some proper noun in vernacular, but it is really difficult to translate proper noun in vernacular to mother language. We have some promble in record,so when we make our monograph, sometimes we use phonetic symbols to assume vernacular pronunciation. ?.It is not easy to match the night time: Our visiters are almost day worker.They just have free time at night.However some of our students must go to conference at night who can not attend the interview.It is so pity! ?.Information and bibliography are difficult to collect: Dove's Ling is our local folk custom,so it has rare bibliography about Dove's Ling. But we still try our best to finish the monograph.We believe it is helpful for someone who want to study the Dove's Ling issue.
