Formatted Abstract/Summary
In the predominantly Warlpiri community of Lajamanu NT a new language referred to as Light Warlpiri emerged in the 1970s which coexists with traditional Warlpiri and various varieties of English and Kriol. Light Warlpiri is a mixed language in which the verbal grammar, including the auxiliary, is English and Kriol like and uses forms adapted from these languages, while the non-­verbal grammatical categories are expressed by traditional Warlpiri forms, including nominal case-­marking. Despite the formal distinctness of the Light Warlpiri auxiliary, it encodes semantic distinctions that are closely aligned to the categories of traditional Warlpiri expressed by combinations of an uninflecting auxiliary morpheme and an inflecting verb.
