Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha district with two native speakers, Tok Man Baram and Dambar Baram. Both of them have good language profeciency. However, this session is recorded in controlled setting.
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 Baram asked Tok Man Baram about particular matters related to the household life. Dambar has asked Tok Man in different topics like his family, field, relative etc. and Tok Man Baram replied them skillfully.
