Formatted Abstract/Summary
Endangered Languages Documentation Programme (ELDP)-funded project IGS 0039.

The Kayardild language of the Queensland, Australia is the last of the Tangkic languages to be spoken. The four remaining,elderly speakers are also the last people well versed in many areas of traditional knowledge. This project seeks to enlarge the Kayardilid dictionary and audio-visual text corpus, but also to intensify investigation in three areas. The aims are (i) to increase the amount of ethnographic detail and cross-referencing incorporated into dictionary entries, (ii) to document traditional activities beyond those which are narrowly linguistic, and (iii) to begin documentataion of Kayardild song, as an element of the Kayardild way of conversing.

Deposited with the Endangered Languages Archive. [Contents: 18.5hrs video; 95.5hrs audio; 5,600 words of 5- and 7-line interlinear-glossed text (vernacular, phonemic, morphomic, morpho syntactic, free translation; intonation & stress); 17,500 words of additional transcribed text; 255 versus of song; full metadata.]

In January 2010 the Linguistic Society of America passed a Resolution Recognizing the documentation Scholarly Merit of Language Documentation, recognising documentation materials ‘as scholarly contributions to be given weight in the awarding of advanced degrees and in decisions on hiring, tenure, and promotion of faculty’ (see http://www.lsadc.org/info/lsa-res-lang-doc.cfm). A similar resolution was passed by the Australian Linguistic Society in July 2010.
