Description:We called Panmati Baram at Gorkha as language consultant. She said she could speak her language but she said she had not speaken her language for last few years. Later we found she was a fluent speaker. Although she was a fluent speaker it is difficult to understand her speech because she has already lost her front teeth. This file was recorded in a room in controlled situation.e
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.
Panmati Baram narrates the historical description of Mukhya system. Her father was Mukhya in the village. He used to comand all the villagers and order as a leader. Many people would pay him taxes and would bring him food and other gifts. She is so excited to recall her past. However, the time has changed. No traces of Mukhya (head) system remains at present.
