Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha. Tek Bahadur and Tok Man are the participants. Both of them are old and resourceful and they have economically strong in the village. We asked them who was richer one. We first discussed about what they possessed. Later we requested to have a conversation comparing the things they have in terms of number and/or quantity. After two attempts we were successful to record the session.
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 session Tek Bahadur and Tok Man discuss what they possessed. They compare their property, family, etc. and both of them try to prove who is richer.
