Description:Kamala was hesitating to speak in front of the recorder and mic but we encouraged her. We provided her several topics to talk about and at last she was ready to describe from how millet is sowed to how it is made ready to eat in a very short session.
This project aims to document Baram, a seriously endangered language of Nepal, for its preservation and promotion. For this purpose, we will develop a corpus of the various texts of the Baram language and thereby prepare resources such as its sketch grammar, lexicon and ethnographic profile. To revitalize the language, we will develop Baram orthography and prepare a Baram primer to facilitate its use in basic education and literacy programmes. The audio-video recordings of the Baram database will be archived with its annotation in a website for its accessibility to linguists, ethnographers and the Baram speech community.
In this text Kamala describe the process from how millet is sowed to how it is made ready to eat.
Mrs. Kamala Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with her quite later and have taken some texts from her.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
