Daniela Diedrich

  • Title: PhD Graduate (UM Node)
  • Program: Shape
  • Institution: University of Melbourne

Topic: A Grammar of Paku, a Language of Central Kalimantan Supervisors: Nick Thieberger, Rachel Nordlinger, Sander Adelaar Daniela did her undergraduate studies at the University of Cologne and La Trobe University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in 2010. Her Honours research focused on the phonology of Tombulu, a Minahasan language spoken in North Sulawesi, which ignited a keen interest in Austronesian linguistics. Daniela’s PhD research is concerned with the documentation of Paku, a highly endangered Southeast Barito language spoken in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. She works with speakers to compile a grammar, a dictionary and texts in order to not only preserve the language but also the cultural heritage for future generations. Of particular interest in Paku are the harmony systems in the phonology as well as the at times complex verbal morphology. As a member of the Southeast Barito language family, Paku is closely related to Malagasy and the documentation of the Bornean Southeast Barito languages will hopefully contribute to research into the migration of the Malagasy.

Jennifer Green is a linguist in the School of Languages and Linguistics at the University of Melbourne and a member of RUIL (the Research Unit for Indigenous Language). Green has worked in Central Australia since the mid 1970s documenting Indigenous languages, cultural history and visual arts. She has researched and compiled two major dictionaries: Alyawarr (Green 1992) and Central & Eastern Anmatyerr (Green 2010); co-authored The Town Grew up Dancing: The Life and Art of Wenten Rubuntja (Rubuntja & Green 2002) and collaborated on many language documentation projects, including recent work on Indigenous sign languages with Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education (http://iltyemiltyem.com/sign/). Her recently published book, Drawn from the Ground: Sound, Sign and Inscription in Central Australian Sand Stories (Cambridge University Press, 2014), examines the way multiple semiotic systems work together in the narrative practice of ‘sand drawing’. She has recently been awarded an ARC DECRA award to conduct further research on the ways that Indigenous sign languages are used in Australia.

Heather Kember completed her PhD at the University of Sydney with Dr Karen Croot. This work used the tongue twister methodology to examine segmental, tonal, and prosodic production in Mandarin Chinese. Since then, she has been a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northeastern University. There she investigated prosodic production in two different populations who may struggle with spoken intelligibility (speakers with dyarthria and second language learners of English). In both of these populations she examined prosodic knowledge and control, and designed intervention studies aimed at improving intelligibility (measured both acoustically and perceptually). She worked with Professor Anne Cutler examining cross-linguistic prosodic processing.

Anna Stephen

  • Title: Former Research Fellow (UM Node)
  • Program: Shape/Learning

Anna Stephen has lived and worked in the Northern Territory for 8 years. She has recently completed a PhD exploring the environmental and social determinants of otitis media (OM) in Aboriginal children living remotely. Her work with Jill Wigglesworth for COEDL will focus on creating educational resources and programs to improve phonological awareness and literacy in Aboriginal children with OM and associated hearing loss. She is very excited about collaborating with researchers from COEDL and believes that interdisciplinary collaborations are essential to improving the care and services for Aboriginal children with OM.

Anna held two post-doctoral positions with the Centre of Research Excellence for the Dynamics in Language and the Centre of Research Excellence in Ear and Hearing Health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children. She has skills in both quantitative and qualitative research, conducting clinical trials and writing systematic reviews to Cochrane standards.
