Wow! Light Warlpiri has hit the news big time. Carmel O’Shannessy just published a paper in Language on it. And it’s been taken up as news: The Atlantic, and you can see it and other renditions in Google News. And the Atlantic makes use of the material on Carmel O’Shannessy’s research page. OK – they don’t focus on the fascinating auxiliary, and maybe it isn’t the world’s newest language, (though it must be a contender).. but isn’t it a wonderful thing that more people are realising how interesting this work is!
