Description:It was the season to sow maize. First we discussed with the Baram people about it and later we asked them what types of soil are suitable for different crops. After a discussion Tok and Tek were ready to have a conversation on the topic.
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, Tek Bahadur and Tok Man are talking about the different types of soil and the crops grown in different types of soil.
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. Tek Bahadur Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with him after some months the project was launched. He is a very resourceful person as he has information about the different aspects of Baram people and culture. He was a village head previously so he has a wide range of information. We have taken several texts from him. He is a good story teller.
