OLAC Record

Title:It may happen
Linguistic and Ethnographic Documentation of the Baram Language
Contributor (consultant):Tek
Description:This session was recorded in the context of Constitutional Assembly Election in Nepal. The electiion date was near and the language consultants were talking about it. We thought it would be a good chance to record a session. We asked them what may happen in Nepal after the election. First they discussed about it and later Tek Bahadur and Dambar Bahadur were ready to have a conversation about it.
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 Dambar and Tek Bahadur discuss what may happen in Nepal after the Electiion of Constituent Assembly. They predict different possibilities may happen in the future.
Mr. Tek Bahadur Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with him after some months the project was launched. He is a very resourceful person as he has information about the different aspects of Baram people and culture. He was a village head previously so he has a wide range of information. We have taken several texts from him. He is a good story teller.
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.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
