Call For Papers

3 July 2023 (online, via Zoom)
Organisers: Catherine Travis & Li Nguyen (ANU; Language Data Commons of Australia (LDaCA))

Over decades of work in Australia, significant collections of language data have been amassed, including of varieties of Australian English, Australian migrant languages, Australian Indigenous languages, sign languages and others. These collections represent a trove of knowledge not only of language in Australia, but also of Australia’s social and cultural history. And yet, not all are well known and many lack published descriptions. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity to share information about existing language corpora in Australia, with a view to producing a special issue of the Australian Journal of Linguistics that introduces a selection of these corpora, explores how they can contribute to our understanding of language, society, and history in Australia, and considers avenues that such corpora open up for future research.
This workshop is being run as part of the Language Data Commons of Australia (LDaCA), which is working to build national research infrastructure for the Humanities and Social Sciences, facilitating access to and use of digital language corpora for linguists, scholars across the Humanities and Social Sciences, and non-academics.

Abstract submission
For a 20 min presentation, please submit a 250-300 word abstract in English (excluding references). The presentation should include the following information:
· Speech community/fieldsite: Describe the location of the community and/or their brief history in Australia, the languages spoken and their current status.
· Corpus design principles: Specify the sample size, sociolinguistic background of the participants, method of data collection and/or genre (e.g. sociolinguistic interviews, natural conversations, oral histories, elicited data, etc.); data format (written/spoken/audio/video, etc.) and where it is stored.
· Corpus findings and implications: Summarise some key findings from the corpus and discuss other insights that might be obtained from the data in current or future work.
