Linguistic and Ethnographic Documentation of the Baram Language
Contributor (consultant):Panmati
Contributor (recorder):Dubi Nanda
Description:This session was recorded in Gorkha district of western Nepal. In this session, Panmati who is a fluent native speaker of Baram language has expressed her own description of childhood.
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.
Panmati is a fluent native speaker of Baram language. She gives a quietly long description of her childhood. In this essay she used to go to the forest and collects firewood. She likes to go field-work then forest. Sometimes, when she finishes her field-work then she goes to sing the songs in the evening. Along with this, she takes food like maize as breakfast and drink liquor with this. Boys and girls live together drinking the liquor. Finally, they return to the home and continue their work.
Mrs. Panmati Baram is a fluent speaker of Baram language. We started to work with her quite later and have taken several texts from her. She is a good story teller and her texts are generally interesting, systematically organised. She doesn't have front lower teeth and she speaks quite faster so her texts are relatively difficult to understand.
