Summary of deposit
Parsi Gujarati is a minor vernacular language of a Parsi (Indian Zoroastrian) ethnoreligious community in Gujarat and Maharashtra. It is primarily spoken by the elders and inextricably linked with the unique Parsi identity: its culture, religious ceremonies, arts, crafts, professions, oral expressions and folklore. The project aims at comprehensive videography-based documentation of PG through a text corpus with audio-visual recordings of naturally generated discourse occurring around extinguishing lifecycle rituals such as unique Parsi-Zoroastrian funerals exclusively performed by few hereditary corpse-bearers and context-dependent idioms, a PG distinguishing feature; and a dictionary with terms arising from rituals and traditional arts and crafts.
