Linguistic and Ethnographic Documentation of the Baram Language

Coverage:Nepal
Description:This recording was done at the site office of LEDBL at Gorkha in the beginning of data gathering in the field. We had invited Dambar Bahadur Baram and Tok Man Baram from Danda Gaun, Gorkha as language consultants. We asked him to tell us about the people in the past. He told us about the difficult life of the people as he observed in his early days of his life. Apart from this, he compares the lives in the past and the present.
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.
The people in the past lived a very difficult life. They didn't have enough to eat and had to weave their clothes at home. There were no roads or transportation. So they had to walk everywhere carrying heavy loads on their backs. But nowadays, there are several types of facilities and the life has become easier. People's attitude has deviated towards fashion from work.
