Just a question to both dissertators using transcriptionists: do the folks you use (or are going to use) keep the "flavor" of the speakers' language (slang, poor grammar, stops, starts, vocal utterances [um, ah, whatever]), or do they modify it to be "correct" (as the transcriptionst deems correct)?

They say they omit "ums" and the like. I'll let you know more once I get the transcript back.
