Furthermore to presenting the Kaurna electronic dictionaries at Australex next week, we’ve been invited to give a talk at the University of Melbourne Linguistics & Applied Linguistics Postgraduate Conference 2008, held November 21-22. It’s a great excuse for me to finally visit Melbourne for the first time in… about 13 years.

Then, this morning, we received confirmation that our abstract has been accepted for the 1st International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation in Honolulu, Hawai’i in March next year! By which time we should both be well and truly stuck into our next phase of the project, being generously supported by a grant from the Hoffman foundation, which you can read about here.

Unfortunately for me, March next year is during the teaching period meaning I won’t be able to attend. But hopefully James will be free then and will present our project to a wider audience.
