This article is a summary of some phonological and morphosyntactic features of the
Baram language. Baram is a severely endangered language spoken by a few fluent
speakers. Most of the phonological features are like those of Nepali, the language of the
wider communication and lingua franca of the nation. Despite the massive borrowing of
lexical items, Baram has retained some morphosyntactic features. Some of them include
derivation of nouns and adjectives, morphophonological features, directional prefixes
attached to verbs among others.
