Aaley, Uday Raj; Bodt, Timotheus Adrianus

This data set contains 11 audio files and 3 video files of the interviews held with the last two known Kusunda speakers from Nepal, Gyani Maiya Sen Kusunda and Kamala Khatri (Sen Kusunda), on August 11th, 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 elicitation of minimal pairs and verbal paradigms and the retelling of three Nepali children’s book’s stories.
