Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha. Ram Bahadur is a participant. We have recorded this session in a controlled enviorment.
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.
Ram Bahadur Baram has described a typical culture called Maghe Jatra that takes place in his village. Although Ram Bahadur is a fluent native speaker his hesitation during the recording has made this session not so long. He has discribed in this session what happens in Maghe Jatra. The people from the villages gather in a particular place such as a local market and celebrate this festival.
Mrs. Ram Bahadur Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram Language. He has good knowledge of language but doesn't seem to be a good story teller. He mainly helped us with elecitation more than with text collection.
Mr. Dubi Nanda Dhakal is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
