Rosey Billington

 

Rosey Billington is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language, affiliated with The University of Melbourne Phonetics Laboratory and the Research Unit for Indigenous Language. Her main research interest is the intersection of experimental phonetics and language documentation, and she is particularly interested in languages of the Pacific, Africa, and Australia.

Her current primary research project focuses on the phonetics of Nafsan, an Oceanic language of Vanuatu, and has recently extended to the sound systems of the Lelepa and Eton languages in Vanuatu. For her doctoral research, she investigated the phonetics and phonology of Lopit, an Eastern Nilotic language of South Sudan. She also maintains an interest in research on the phonetic characteristics of English varieties in Australia, and in creole languages of the Pacific and Africa, and is currently undertaking pilot work on the phonetics of Bislama. She is a co-founder of the Linguistics Roadshow, an educational and engagement program for high-school students.
