Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha. We requeste Tok Man to describe us about how Baram people make wine. First he described the process of making wine and then he talked about the importance of wine in Baram culture, how wine is good and how people misuse it. So we divided the session into two sessions: 'The process of making wine' and 'The results of drinking wine'.
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 Tok Man talks about the misuse of wine. Wine is an essential thing in Baram culture. It is compulsory in every cultural and religious event so it is made in every Baram household. Wine is a good thing if used properly. But people misuse it and drink wine more than they can digest. As a result they get intoxicated and commit social crimes. He also talks about what people do while they are intoxicated.
Mr. Krishna Prasad Chalise is affiliated to The Central Department of Linguistics, Tribhuvan University. In this project he has been working as a researcher. He has been responsible of coordination of different aspects of the project including some aspects of management, computing, annotation, panning etc.
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.
