Title:I encountered with Masan
Linguistic and Ethnographic Documentation of the Baram Language
Contributor (consultant):Sabbal
Contributor (recorder):Krishna
Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha district of western Nepal. In this session Sabal Singh a fluent native speaker of Baram language has expressed his own experiences when his small daughter was with him. He afried when he was a Masan (ghost) in a jungle.
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.
This story related to the travel from Gorkha to Nuwakot. There are two persons: Sabal Singh and his daughter. Once when they reached near the farm land in Salyantar, a sound (of ghost) came there. The ghost played a trumpet and they became afraid. Luckily, they had a lighter and put it on. They accused with the God for their mistake that was a wrong time to walk. Finally, the ghost went away to the right and left side when it was time to arrive at the market. All the people were sleeping at the market. They had only a cup of tea at a place called Achune. They also met his bond-friend there.
