Websites

I have been involved in the creation of the following websites, in addition to this one:

  • Gamilaraay/Kamilaroi web dictionary — presents information on the Gamilaraay language, traditionally spoken in north-west New South Wales, Australia. It is the first ┬áthe first fully hypertext bilingual dictionary of any language published on the world wide web, and was developed 25 years ago, being officially launched on 16th February 1996. There is an outline of its history in this blog post.
  • Jiwarli: A Language of Western Australia — this site was developed with a group of students at University of Melbourne in 1998. It gives an Introduction to the Jiwarli language, culture, and region of north-western Western Australia, including background about Jack Butler, the last native speaker of Jiwarli, photos, maps, short texts, and some recordings of spoken Jiwarli. The site is no longer live but is held in the National Library of Australia’s Pandora archive within its Trove catalogue. Much of the information can also be found on the Jiwarli language blog.
  • Hans Rausing Endangered Languages Project — this site was established in March 2003 for the project based at SOAS which covered the activities of the Endangered Languages Academic Programme (ELAP), the Endangered Languages Archive (ELAR), and the Endangered Languages Documentation Programme (ELDP). The website was discontinued in 2016; the most recent version dated 5 March 2016 can be found on the Internet Archive.
