Workshop: Ngumpin-Yapa Workshop

The Ngumpin-Yapa Workshop brings together linguists involved with research on languages of the Ngumpin-Yapa subgroup of the Pama-Nyungan language family. Sessions will cover a broad range of topics including phonology, morphology, syntax, language contact, language change and historical reconstruction within this subgroup. Linguists will present work-in-progress and informal papers for discussion during the workshop. Papers will be 45 minutes, and presenters are welcome to divide time between presentation and discussion as they wish (e.g. 20min:25min, 30min:15min).

Also, join us for guided walk-throughs of upcoming exhibitions at the UQ Art Museum and the UQ Anthropology museum, after the close of the workshop on Friday.
