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 Gregory Dickson and Kriol speaker Grant Thompson.
