Description:This session was recorded in Kathmandu at project office. I had invited Ram Bahadur to help us with transcription of the texts. We had not recorded anything from him and wanted to record some texts. Because of his shy nature he could contribute few texts. This is the first text recorded from him.
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 tells us about the process of building a cowshed.
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.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
