Description:
This is the first recording with Mina Baram. We met her at Gorkha near by our site office at Gorkha where she had come to her daughter's house to celebrate her grandson's grown up ceremony. She said she could speak her language but she had not spken it for last six years. In this text she tells her life story.
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.
Mina Baram talks about the memories of her past life. She describes what happened in her life from her childhood to the present time.
