Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha district of western Nepal. Tokman who is a fluent native speaker of Baram language has described about old people in his village.
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.
There are some old people in Danda Gaun village but most of them are died. Among them Tokman's grandfather was also died in early age. Then Kaile Budha another old people of his village and his wife also died when he was child. There are other people called Gumane, Madale, Kajiman, Purnaman etc. all of them are now died.
