Description:This session contains a short description about the various body parts and their functions. This session was recorded in Gorkha district of western Nepal. In this session, Tokman Baram who is a fluent native speaker has narrated about the various organs of the body and their functions.
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.
Tokman Baram narrates a short description about Bhote, Tibetan people and their social setting. In this description the Bhote people cover their house with wooden planks. They stay in lowland during winter and goes upper side summer. If anybody goes from down, they give them a big and boiled potato. Because the cattle can’t walk, they rear the sheep and like that only in all villages. Tokman also tells a myth related to the buffalo and cow. He also makes some proto forms of many Tibetan place names like Kutang Bhote, Syar Bhote, Karung Bhote etc. Finally, Tokman concludes that it is difficult for Bhote people.
