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 session Dambar who is a useful speaker especially for data elicitation has told a story of two characters- Lamkane and drummer. He explained about a ghost called Lamkane and drummer trekking to bring salt. The drummer, one day, meets the Lamkane and he threw the drum and the ghost followed the sound of drum, so he escaped from the ghost.
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. Dubi Nanda Dhakal is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
