Description:This is a role play in which Dambar is playing a role of the president of a public meeting. The meeting is to discuss about the school. After we gave the situation Dambar tried for three times in front of us and then he was sure about himself. Then we recorded the 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.
This is a role play in which Dambar is playing a role of the president of a public meeting. The meeting is to discuss about the school. In reality he is an exchairman of the managing committee of the school. In this speech Dambar is talking about the history of the school, how he tried to improve the condition of the and what can be done to improve the condition of the school.
Mr. Dambar Bahadur 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 and good at role playing. But he has got one problem that his texts are generally lack coherence.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
