Description:Mina says people keep stealing things from her house and she is irritated with them. She was ready to record a session in which she expresses her rage to the people. But we requested her to keep the people annonymous and she accepted our request. Then we recorded this session.
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 Mina curses to the people who keep stealing things from her house. She is very angry with them for their cunning behaviour. So, in this text, she wishes for their bad fortune for their guilt.
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.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
