Description:
This is told by Bao Xiangan. The story telling took place on July 3, 2018, at the home of Bao's daugther, Xiao Yangfu, in Gejia Village. His grandaughter YZH (translator and recorder) film the session and translates between the researcher FU and her grandpa. Recording is done 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.
