Description:In this session, Sabbal Singh Baram describes an incident when he saw a wizard. This session is thus related to supernatural thing.
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.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
Mr. Sabbal Singh Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with him from later part of the project. We have not taken several texts from him because he is always busy with his household work. He is an interesting person. He is clear in his voice but he could not contribute us longer texts.
