Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha. Pan Mati was new to us and the recording environment so she hesitated to present herself for recording. But we tried to convince her to talk about anything she felt easy. We thought agricultural work can be one easy topic for her to talk about. She accepted the topic. Before recording we discussed with her about the process of planting rice in Nepali.
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.
Pan Mati Baram talks about the preparation and the process of planting rice. She describes from sowing the rice grains to harvesting the crop. It is not an easy task. There are so many difficulties due to people, weather, the nature, etc.
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.
