Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha district. Panmati who is a fluent speaker of Baram has produced this text. Her upper teeth are uneven. So her pronounciation is little bit to understood. But her fluency in native language is good. However, we have recorded this text in a controlled envirment.
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 Panmati who is a good language speaker has told her rememberance of what happened when she got her daughter married. Sometime, she has also added her own experiences along with the marriage description.
Mrs. Panmati Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with her quite later and have taken several texts from her. She is a good story teller and her texts are generally interesting, systematically organised. She doesn't have front lower teeth and she speaks quite faster so her texts are relatively difficult to understand.
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.
