Description:This is a role play in which Dambar is a person who is in a problem and Tok consoles him. It was recorde in Gorkha. Before recording we had had some rehearsals. The recording condition was not good enough as there was noise on the background.
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 Dambar is in a problem and too much worried about it and Tok Man tries to console him giving several examples of difficult situations he himself and other people faced in their lives.
