Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha district. Mina and Kamala Baram both are native speaker of Baram language have told this dialogue. Mina has asked Kamala to speak about her sister-in-law (Buhari) and she told what her sister-in-law does in the house.
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 dialogue, Mina and Kamala Baram discussed about elder and younger Buharies, sisters-in-law of Kamala. Mina asks some questions related to the younger sister-in-law and Kamala answers of these. According to the Kamala, her young Buhari lives separately from her and does quite well. Kamala likes her very much because she says that she will go to take grass and return in time. Kamala cooks food for her. Her elder Buhari also live separately and does well. Kamala gives their part from her ancestor property. Nowadays, when Kamala goes to the Buhari’s house they take care of her. Even when they meet on the road, they ask of her coming. Along with this description, Kamala and Mina discusses about other matters related to her son, grand-son and grand-daughter.
