Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha. Tek Bahadur Baram is narrating his childhood experiences in this session. He states that his parents were well off in the village. They had enough proproties and so on. He also narrates the marriage of his sisters and so on.
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.
