Kusunda Audio and Video Files Day 6 04082019 - Part 2

Aaley, Uday Raj; Bodt, Timotheus Adrianus

This data set contains 13 audio files (in the first part, DOI 10.5281/zenodo.3380206) and 22 video files (157 in this data set and 15 in the first part, DOI 10.5281/zenodo.3380206) 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.
