Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha from Ram Bahadur Baram. He is a carpenter and involves most of the time in building houses in the village and near by villages. In this session we recorded the process of building a house.
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 text Ram Bahadur describes the process of building a house on the basis of his own experiences.
Mr. Krishna Prasad Chalise is affiliated to The Central Department of Linguistics, Tribhuvan University. In this project he has been working as a researcher. He has been responsible of coordination of different aspects of the project including some aspects of management, computing, annotation, panning etc.
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.
