The Internet joins us all

Cat Kutay

School of Computer Science & Engineering, University of New South Wales

Language work involved many people, not only for collecting data but also for making decisions about how this information can be used and for whom. In Australia, many Aboriginal people were once deliberately removed from family, but now wish to reconnect with their language and culture. The internet provides resources to share linguistic analyses, the spoken word, and people who want to learn and hear their language. The issue of access rights to Indigenous knowledge can be handled better with this improved communication and sharing. Cat will talk about the web services she has been working on and present how they have been used by endangered language communities, using the examples of three New South Wales languages.
