Unlocking a tropical language: focus on Papua New Guinea

There is an outstanding opportunity for a well-qualified and socially motivated
student of linguistics to take up a PhD scholarship within the exciting new
Cairns Institute at James Cook University. New Guinea is home to the greatest
linguistic diversity in the world. There are many fascinating languages with
intricate grammatical structures which mirror the social, economic and
geographical environment in which they are spoken. All are threatened by the
encroaching tide of globalization. Maintaining and documenting their language is
a key factor for community well-being and sustainable development. Those
demanding urgent attention include languages of Manus Province, the Sepik area
and the Huon Peninsula.
