Description:Kamala was hesitating to present herself in front of camera and recorder because she was not used to such things. We tried to make he familiar with them and finally she was ready. We asked her to select an easier topic and she wanted to talk about her family. She practised first and later final recording was made.
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 Kamala talks about her family members, her own past life and present situation of the family.
Mrs. Kamala Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with her quite later and have taken some texts from her.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
