Kusunda - Raw sound files

Aaley, Uday Raj; Bodt, Timotheus Adrianus

This data set contains the raw sound files of the interviews held with the last two Kusunda speakers from Nepal, Gyani Maiya Sen Kusunda and Kamala Khatri (Sen Kusunda), late July and early August 2019, in Kathmandu Nepal.

There are a total of 79 files recorded with a Tascam handheld audio recorder, with a total length of 20 hours 40 minutes. There is elicitation of word lists and verbal paradigms; conversation between the two speakers; personal narratives; an origin story; retold stories from picture books; and comments on earlier video and audio recordings.

The processed sound files and the associated video files and other information will be uploaded here in Zenodo in due course of time.

This research was funded by a 2,000 USD grant from the Endangered Language Fund (http://www.endangeredlanguagefund.org/), a 700 euro contribution by the European Research Council Starting Grant 715618 “Computer-Assisted Language Comparison” ( http://calc.digling.org), and a total of 2,320 euros raised through crowdfunding at GoFundMe (https://www.gofundme.com/f/saving-the-kusunda-language-in-nepal). Many thanks to all generous contributors.
