Nick Thieberger


Nick Thieberger was awarded a PhD in Linguistics from the University of Melbourne in 2004. He is an Australian Research Council QEII fellow at the University of Melbourne where he is a CI in the project 'Doing great things with small languages' exploring how to create better records of languages in the course of language description, after being Assistant Professor in Linguistics at the University of Hawai'i. He is a CI in the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language which commenced in 2014.

Nick is a co-founder and co-Director of the Resource Network for Linguistic Diversity. He established Wangka Maya, the Pilbara Aboriginal language centre, in Port Hedland in the late 1980s where he worked with speakers of local Aboriginal languages. He works with South Efate, a language from central Vanuatu, for which he wrote a grammar, dictionary and collection of texts, and developed a method for citing archival recordings created during fieldwork. This process of building an analysis based in primary materials led him to establish the Pacific And Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures (with colleagues from other Australian universities), of which he is now Director. In 2008 Nick established Kaipuleohone, the linguistic archive at the University of Hawai'i. Nick is the Editor of the journal Language Documentation & Conservation.
