She notices that Dambar has become a drunkard and comes to convince him that it is bad think to drink wine. First they performed rehearsal and after they were ready this session was recorded.
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 is trying to convince Dambar that it is bad to drink wine, but Dambar insists that wine is compulsory part of Baram culture and he should drink. Apart from this, he claims that drinking wine is also good for health. But finally Mina convinces him.
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. Dambar Bahadur 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 and good at role playing. But he has got one problem that his texts are generally lack coherence.
Mr. Krishna Paudel is a Research Assistant (RA) in this project. He has been actively participate in the field work, computing and other activeities.
