On Friday 25 May 2001 at MIT in Cambridge, Mass., USA, Ken Hale was
presented with an Australian festschrift, 'Forty Years On'.

The volume, with 38 contributors, is published by Pacific Linguistics,
and is now available for sale. Details are at
http://www.anu.edu.au/linguistics/nash/aust/hale 
including a link to the table of contents.

There were over 50 people present, including the Hale family, and
Australian(ist) linguists Jane Simpson, David Nash, Mary Laughren, and
Barry Alpher (who, with Peter Austin, are the volume's editors),
contributors Norvin Richards and Claire Bowern, and Michael Walsh. A
Warlpiri greeting was read from a Warlpiri language and education
workshop which had just been held at Lajamanu.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

In 1959-60 Ken Hale documented around seventy Australian languages
using the methods of modern linguistics and anthropology. In the
years since, Hale (now Emeritus Professor at MIT) has written and
published numerous papers on theoretical and descriptive topics, made
his field records available to several generations of linguists, and
encouraged native speakers in studying and maintaining their
languages.

The 36 contributions to this volume reflect the broad diversity of
Hale's pioneering work. The 38 contributors include linguists from
Australia and North America, and three Australian language speakers.

The volume starts with several chapters dealing directly with Hale's
fieldwork, beginning as he did in Alice Springs with Arrernte and
Warlpiri. These include first-hand accounts, by Sara Hale and others,
of what it was like grappling with fresh ideas and being in the field
in Australia in the 1960s, and serve to place his work in the broader
context of Australian language studies. The breathtaking scope of
Hale's contribution, both in terms of languages documented and topics
examined, is reflected in the diversity of languages and topics
covered by the remaining chapters: theory, typology, methodology;
syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology, historical linguistics,
language change and creativity, and language policy implementation.

The volume also includes an interview with Hale, two vocabularies
collected by Hale and O'Grady in 1960, and a bibliography of Hale's
Australian work.
