“A a hybrid conference, with virtual and in-person attendance and presentations. Joining us virtually as the plenary speaker will be Lise Dobrin, professor at the University of Virginia, USA. Dr Dobrin is a professor of Anthropological Linguistics and inspires us to examine the sociolinguistic and anthropological contexts of languages and their speakers.
LSPNG 2021 aims to provide a venue for an exchange of ideas on the value of indigenous languages in Melanesia. To do this, we want to encourage the documentation and description of under-represented languages, as well as the linguistics and sociolinguistics of creoles like Tok Pisin. Papers are invited which deal with the details of languages spoken in the South Pacific, papers on the sociolinguistics, linguistics, multi-lingualism, anthropology, literacy and education, ethnomusicology or applied linguistics of these languages. Papuan and Austronesian languages interact in dramatic linguistic diversity in PNG, from firmly established to highly endangered.”
