Description:Tok Man is relatively a rich person in his village. He has more land and property than the average people in the village. He says people keep stealing things from his house, field, etc. and he is irritated with them. He was ready to record a session in which he expresses his rage to the people. But we requested him to keep the people annonymous and he 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 Tok Man curses to the people who keep stealing things from his house, field, etc. He is very angry with them for their cunning behaviour. So, in this text, he uses very rude words to them.
Mr. Tok Man Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with him from the beginning of the project. and have taken several texts from him. He is a good story teller.His texts are generally interesting, systematically organised and clear.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
