Peter Austin

Visiting Professor

My research is mainly on language documentation, syntax (with a focus on Lexical Functional Grammar), morpho-syntactic typology, computer-aided lexicography and multi-media for endangered languages. I do fieldwork on Australian Aboriginal languages and Sasak and Samawa, spoken in eastern Indonesia. I am currently working with the Dieri Aboriginal Corporation on a language revitalisation project funded by an Indigenous Languages Support grant.
