Today I uploaded version 2.10 of the second edition of my Grammar of Diyari, South Australia — it is downloadable here. This version includes two sample glossed texts, additional comparative remarks on related languages, and typographic and formatting corrections.
The slides are now available here from my Invited webinar for the Department of Linguistics, Kuvempu University, Shivamogga, India, on “Language endangerment: what is it and what can we do about it?”. The talk was presented on 14 December 2020 and repeated 17 December 2020 (due to Google outage partway through on 2020-12-14)
I am currently working on a project on the Malyangapa language which was traditionally spoken in far western New South Wales and eastern South Australia. This work is based on materials collected by Stephen A. Wurm in 1957 together with some older sources and data collected by Jeremy Beckett and Luise Hercus. You can read more about the project here.
