Abstract

In late July and early August 2019, we spent an intensive 12 days in interviewing and recording what we presumed were the last two speakers of the highly endangered Kusunda language of Nepal. We have made these data available in open access in Zenodo. These data provide the most extended corpus of publicly accessible Kusunda data till date. Because of time constraints, we were able to only make a preliminary analysis of the data. This short report is primarily meant to make the availability of our data known to a wider audience. We hope that the data will encourage other linguists and ethnographers to take a further look at the Kusunda language and culture. A more detailed description of the language is required to write a functional grammar and extended dictionary that will assist in the ongoing language revitalisation efforts.
