Celebrating Kristang

Language Documentation for Beginners

What kinds of fieldwork are being done on languages? How do linguists document languages? Field linguists Dr Michael Erlewine and Dr Mário Pinharanda Nunes will take participants through the basics of documenting and preserving endangered languages like Kristang and Kristang’s sister creole in Macau, Maquísta.

This would be of special interest to those with some knowledge of Kristang, though this is not a pre-requisite.
