Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha. We discussed about what crops Baram people grow round a year. First we recorded a session about it and then we discussed about what happens if there is no rain.
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.
Mina Baram talks about what crops Baram people in the village grow throughout the year. And she compares the situations of the crops while there is enough rain and while there is drought. She says rain is very important for growing crops. If there is drought, it becomes very difficult for people to grow sufficient food to sustain throughout the year.
Mrs. Mina Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram Language. She is a good story teller and contributed a number of texts for the purpose of the project.
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.
