ABORIGINAL LANGUAGE EVOLUTION IN URBAN CONTEXTS
Grant number: DE180100872 | Funding period: 2018 - 2022
This project aims to investigate how Aboriginal languages evolve in, and shape, Aboriginal engagement in cities. It will focus on Darwin-based speakers of Murrinhpatha, a language with unusually complex word structure. The expected outcome of this project is an understanding of linguistic complexity in an urban context.
