Description:It is a dramatized sesssion. A situation was given to Mina in which she had not met her friend for a long time. Although she is preliterate, she had to tell us what she would write to her friend. In the beginning we made her understand the situation given and then she practised for two times. After that we recorded the session.
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 current situation of the village, family and herself as written in a letter.
