Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha. Tek Bahadur and Dambar are the participants. Both of them are old and resourceful and they have economically strong in the village. We asked them who was richer one. We first discussed about what they possessed. Later we requested to have a conversation comparing the things they have in terms of number and/or quantity. After two attempts we were successful to record the session.
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.
They were asked who was richer one. In a conversation comparing the things they have in terms of number and/or quantity was discussed. They compare their property, family, etc. and both of them try to prove that he is richer.
Mr. Dambar Bahadur 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 and good at role playing. But he has got one problem that his texts are generally lack coherence.
