Coronal Place Oppositions in Wubuy
- Dr Mark Harvey (University of Newcastle)
- Dr Brett Baker (Unviersity of Melbourne)
- Dr Rikke Bundgaard-Nielsen, Dr Christian Kroos, Professor Cathi Best (University of Western Sydney)
To record data on, and analyze coronal place oppositions in Wubuy, an Australian language of the Northern Territory. This project commenced in 2008 with EMA and audio recordings being made with Wubuy speakers. Since then, the team have been analyzing the results.
