Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha. Dambar was interested to tell us an interesting event of Fagupurnima and we requested him to tell us. We thought it would be better to record.
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 Dambar talks about the festival of Fagupurnima. Once he observed a Fagupurnima Jatra and he talks about what happened during that time.
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.
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.
