Description:The consent is obtained from Bao Xiangan, the story teller, on July 3, 2018, at his daughter's home in Gejia Village. His granddaughter Yang Zhouhui, served as an interpreter. She explained the project and asked for permission for the stories to be publicized. Bao has told ten stories in one setting. Fu and Yang Zhouhui recorded the session using Sony Camcorder Fdr-ax100 4k and Zoom H2N.
Lemo is considered a Northern Branch of the Bai language. It is spoken by 12,000 people in the Nujiang Valley of the Yunnan Province in China. Lemo culture and language faces a decline due to the encroachment of Lisu and Mandarin Chinese. The current project aims at working with the Language Community to document its language in its dynamic daily uses and cultural performances. It will produce a working orthography, a language learning manual, partially annotated digital audio and video materials that represent the cultural and linguistic practices, a dictionary, and a sketch grammar.
Gao is a post-doc in linguistics. He specializes in big data analysis. For the project he helps with all technical aspects, including depositing, designing software for the ease of transcription.
