Description:This is a conversation between Mina Baram and Panmati Baram about the village and villagers. They are the most fluent speakers of the language. They talk about domestic affairs and people. They note that people accusing them of going to Gorkha and speaking about their language, and they earn money.
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.
This is a conversation between Mina Baram and Panmati Baram about the village and villagers. They are the most fluent speakers of the language. They are often accused of coming to Gorkha and telling stories to people to earn money.
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.
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. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
