New 'Mixed' Language Discovered in Australia

2 posts in this topic

A new language, one that combines elements of English with traditional indigenous speech, has been discovered in northern Australia, according to a new study.

The language, now known as Light Warlpiri, is spoken by approximately 600 people in a remote desert community about 400 miles (644 kilometers) from Katherine, a town located in Australia's Northern Territory, said Carmel O'Shannessy, a professor in the department of linguistics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. O'Shannessy documented the discovery of Light Warlpiri in a study published online today (June 18) in the journal Language.

I think UM has it's own distinctive language too ... maybe we should go get a grant and conduct an official study ....
