Description:This is the first recording with Tek Bahadur Baram. He was unfamiliar with recording and quite nervous. He was confused about what to speak. We porposed him to tell us about his travel from his house to the project office at Gorkha. First we discussed with him about his journey and after he was quite sure about himself we recorded this 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.
Tek Bahadur talks about how he travelled from his house to the project site office at Gorkha. He describes about the preparation of the travel, path he followed and so on.
Mr. Tok Man Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with him from the beginning of the project. and have taken several texts from him. He is a good story teller.His texts are generally interesting, systematically organised and clear.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
Tek Bahadur is a fluent speaker of Baram. He was a leader (Mukhiya) of the village in the past. Mukhiya system existed in the past in Nepal. A Mukhiya used to be government representative to administer a village. As a previous Mukhiya he has much information and several experiences about the past of the Baram people and culture.
