Dear all,

The University of Queensland is again seeking good advance undergraduate and honours students in Linguistics for the Summer Research Program in the following project:

Agents of Change: Gurindji Children and the Evolution of Gurindji Kriol

This project will form a part of Felicity Meakins' ARC project examining changes in Gurindji Kriol across two generations of Gurindji people. It will compare the speech of 10 year old Gurindji children with the linguistic input they received as babies.

Summer Research scholars will be trained in linguistic annotation and will code transcribed recordings in preparation for statistical analysis.

Summer Research scholars will gain hands on experience in using CLAN and will become familiar with linguistic annotation tools and elicitation methodologies, and its application to youth Indigenous varieties in Australia.

The project will run full-time for 10 weeks from November- February. Summer Research scholars will be paid $300/wk with an additional $500 towards travel costs for non-UQ domestic students or $1000 for international students.

This project is open to applications from advanced students with a background in Linguistics and an interest in fieldwork, Australian languages and language contact.
