Connecting language and landscape

When it comes to language, how well do we actually understand the structure of syllables and words? Dr Mark Harvey's 2015 Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Project aims to determine this through the documentation of a severely endangered Indigenous language.

Dr Mark Harvey

"We will focus on the Kaytetye language because of its unusual structure. We believe this work will show that current models of syllable and word structure may require significant revision," Harvey said.

Harvey, who is a member of the Faculty of Education and Arts' Endangered Language Documentation, Theory and Application (ELDTA) research group, will consider the implications of Kaytetye sound structure for general theories of phonology, and more importantly, for ideas about universals in language. The project will also preserve Indigenous heritage through the extensive documentation of Kaytetye – which is a severely endangered language.

Field work for the project will be undertaken with the Kaytetye community in Neutral Junction Station (Artarre) in the Northern Territory. Here, the Kaytetye language is notbeing acquired by children, and there are no fluent speakers younger than 30.

Indigenous communities are concerned that cultural and linguistic knowledge is not being successfully transmitted within Indigenous communities and to the general Australian community

"Indigenous communities are concerned that cultural and linguistic knowledge is not being successfully transmitted within Indigenous communities and to the general Australian community," Harvey said.

"Recent studies have shown that engaging with traditional language and culture improves health and wellbeing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. For these reasons, the successful maintenance of Indigenous cultural identities is a priority target for both Indigenous communities and all levels of Australian government."

Harvey is also working on a 2014 ARC Discovery Project, titled, Reconstructing Australia's linguistic past: Are all Australian languages related to one another?

As the title suggests, the project focuses on whether all Australian languages are, in fact, derived from a common source language or what is better known in scientific circles as proto-Australian.

This will be determined through an analysis of the endangered Aboriginal language Yanyuwa. Harvey will look at implications of 'yes' and 'no' responses to a series of questions relating to Australia's pre-history and general queries of human pre-history. It also involves the extensive documentation of the language, which is spoken by the Yanyuwa people around the settlement of Borroloola (Yanyuwa burrulula) in the Northern Territory of Australia.

"This research will provide a descriptive grammar of Yanyuwa, a book evaluating the proto-Australian hypothesis, and articles discussing the significance of the success or failure of the hypothesis for theories of the general human past," Harvey said.

Over the past 30 years of his career, Harvey has also focused much of his research on Aboriginal social organisation.

"I differ from other analysts and propose that the clan and kinship system are not internally consistent, but should be analysed as on-going and variable compromises between other more consistently maintained and sometimes conflicting patterns," Harvey explained.

"The most consistently maintained system in Aboriginal social organisation is not clans or kinship systems but rather constructions of the landscape. My investigations are based on extensive site mapping work with Aboriginal people. I have detailed the specific ways in which these constructions anchor discussions of land ownership (clans, tribes) and kinship, particularly marriage."

A third ARC-funded project sees Harvey is working closely with the University of Ballarat to develop a clear understanding of Indigenous spatial knowledge to support the Australian tourism industry. This investigation involves discerning the Indigenous meanings of places, animals and plants; a study known as ethnobiology, which examines the dynamic relationships among peoples, biota and environments throughout the history of time. This information will then be shared in a range of accessible and educational materials designed for tourists and visitors.

"Research on the construction of the landscape is accorded great significance both by Aboriginal people and the research community. It is of particular concern that information collected should be archived in an easily retrievable manner, subject to culturally appropriate monitoring. This is, to date, an essentially un-investigated area of research," Harvey said.

"It is my hope that this research will help our tourism industry to grow by sharing what is a very significant part of our history."

Career Summary

Biography

1. In the period 2001-2006, I had 11 publications in the prinicpal DEST categories (2 x A1, 6 x B1, 5 x C1). This is an average of 2 publications per year.

2. In the period 2001-2006, I was a Chief Investigator on two externally funded grants. A. ARC Discovery Grant (UNewc). (2005 - $40,000, 2006 - $35,000, 2007 $35,000). (Co-investigators: Dr M. Amberber [UNSW], Dr B. Baker [UNE]) B. Australian Institute of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Studies Research Grant. (2003 - $15,000) (Co-investigators - members of the Wagiman community).

3. In the period 2001-2006, I was employed as a consultant by the Aboriginal Areas Protection Authority (NT), and the Northern Land Council (Darwin). Both of these consultancies resulted in extensive reports.

4. I was seconded to the Yirra Bandoo Aboriginal Corporation for Jan 01 Dec 03 and Jul 04 Dec 04 to prepare materials on Gulumoerrgin, the Aboriginal language of Darwin. This secondment was funded by a grant from the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Commission, which was principally to provide for my employment.

Research Expertise
1. Descriptive Linguistic Research There are two strands to my research in this area. One is the production of grammars and dictionaries in paper format. The other is the production of materials in digital/electronic format the cutting edge of descriptive research. I have supervised the production of an online dictionary. I have produced a detailed database transcription and digitisation of 72hrs of Gulumoerrgin audio material.

2. Theoretical Linguistic Research My research has concentrated on two areas: historical linguistics, and complex predicate and word structures. I have undertaken extensive research on one of the principal issues in Australian historical linguistics - the relationships among the languages of central north and north-west Australia - the area of greatest linguistic differentiation. My research on complex predicate and word structures focuses on a conceptual equation, one verbal word = one predicate = one clause, which is central to both modern and traditional grammatical theories. Thus an English sentence such as I let the kids go to town is analysed as bi-clausal, with each of the two verbs let and go being a predicate and having its own clause. However, in other languages including many Aboriginal languages, apparently equivalent structures are mono-clausal, challenging the verbal word = predicate = clause equation and thereby grammatical theories. Joint research with ARC co-investigators has shown that mono-clausal structures do not constitute a unitary category. Rather some structures involve a single complex predicate, but others involve multiple predicates. Further many structures must be analysed as involving two different parts-of-speech. Theoretical models of verb, predicate, and clause therefore require revision.

3. Anthropological Research My research has focused on some central concepts in the analysis of Aboriginal social organisation clan, kinship system. There has been much debate over the validity of these concepts. Most analysts agree, however, in treating these systems as internally consistent. I differ from other analysts and propose that they are not internally consistent, but should be analysed as on-going and variable compromises between other more consistently maintained and sometimes conflicting patterns. Much of the debate has arisen from a failure to recognise this. The most consistently maintained system in Aboriginal social organisation is not clans or kinship systems but rather constructions of the landscape. I have detailed the specific ways in which these constructions anchor discussions of land ownership (clans, tribes) and kinship (particularly marriage). My analyses are based on extensive site mapping work with Aboriginal people. Research on the construction of the landscape is accorded great significance both by Aboriginal people and the research community. It is of particular concern, that information collected should be archived in an easily retrievable manner, subject to culturally appropriate monitoring. This is, to date, an essentially uninvestigated research area. I have produced a draft electronic gazetteer, which is a pioneer in this field. I aim to archive all of my landscape fieldwork research in electronic gazetteers. I also aim to engage with other researchers to develop appropriate archival standards for this new research domain.

Teaching Expertise
1. Curriculum Development. There have been significant changes to the make-up of the student clientele since I joined the discipline in 1994. We have acquired extensive service teaching responsibilities for both Education and Speech Pathology. In order to accommodate our changing clientele, we have undertaken three major curriculum reviews.I played an extensive role in all three reviews.

2. On-line assessment. There are a number of large classes in the linguistics discipline (up to 500 students). We now undertake nearly all assessment on-line for larger classes. I instigated and directed the adoption of on-line assessment in these classes. This involved considerable collaborative interaction with the specialists in overall charge of on-line education.

Administrative Expertise
Linguistics is one of the larger disciplines in the Faculty of Arts & Education. I have been the discipline convenor since Jan 2006. I have expertise in the following. 1. Program Delivery I have co-ordinated our program offerings. This is a complex exercise. In addition to providing a linguistics program, we must satisfy service teaching requirements for Speech Pathology at the Callaghan campus, and Education at Callaghan, Ourimbah and Port Macquarie campuses.

2. Casual staff management. Delivery of the discipline program involves extensive employment of casual staff, particularly in the large 1st year offerings. 3. Workload statistics The discipline convenor's job involves oversight of the discipline teaching workload statistics.

Understanding the sounds of Kaytetye and how to teach them.$24,495

Passing the Kaytetye language on to younger generations is a core goal for the Kaytetye community. The first step in teaching any language is teaching the sounds. Many of the sounds of Kaytetye are poorly understood, and this greatly limits teaching effectiveness. This project is the first step in a longer term plan to develop better models of Kaytetye sounds, thereby giving Kaytetye language teaching a firmer basis.
