Something Lost, Something Found: Kriol of Northern Australia

Northern Australia is a global hotspot of endangered languages. Growing out of the diminishing of Australia’s diverse linguistic heritage is a new language, Kriol. Based on English but pulsing with innovations from its Indigenous speakers, this lecture shows how Kriol is a vibrant, growing language yet one with a troubled existence.

Presented by Dr Greg Dickson and Grant Thompson.
