Kusunda Audio and Video Files Day 6 04082019 - Part 1

Aaley, Uday Raj; Bodt, Timotheus Adrianus

This data set contains 13 audio files (all in this data set) and 22 video files (15 in this data set and 7 in the second part, DOI 10.5281/zenodo.3386029) of the interviews held with the last two known Kusunda speakers from Nepal, Gyani Maiya Sen Kusunda and Kamala Khatri (Sen Kusunda), on August 4th, 2019, in Kathmandu, Nepal.

As per our knowledge, these are the first recordings of Kusunda that are available in the public domain. The recordings constitute mainly wordlist elicitation files, a discussion on the Kusunda class, a narrative by one of the speakers on her future plans, and some elicitation of verbal paradigms.

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.
