Ketuki
Linguistic and Ethnographic Documentation of the Baram Language
Contributor:Krishna
Contributor (consultant):Tok Man
Coverage:Nepal
Description:This file was recorded at the site office of LEDBL at Gorkha in the beginning of data gathering in the field. We had invited Dambar Bahadur Baram and Tok Man Baram from Danda Gaun, Gorkha as language consultant. We asked him to tell us about the people in the past. He told us about Ketuki, one of the plants which is used to make rope and some other similar things.
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 story Tok describe the Ketuki and it's uses in many places. Along with this he make a story with eye of Gadur and a stick gave by Brahma. This story begins for five hundred years ago. Tok heard this story by an old man in the village. This story relates to the time of the gods, not of human beings.
