Show Notes

"When you work with people in Vanuatu, you come with a history."

In this episode, we present three interviews about linguistic fieldwork and the social and sociolinguistic situation in Vanuatu. We speak with

* Carol Aru. She is an expert for the languages of Vanuatu. Bislama and another of the local languages are her mother tongues. In addition to her linguistic expertise, Carol paints for us a vivid picture of the social status of Bislama, the language policies of Vanuatu, and its interactions with the educational system.
* Jocelyn Aznar, whose work is dedicated to the links between language, culture, and identity. In his PhD project he investigated Nisvaie, one of the 30-odd languages spoken on the island of Malekula in Vanuatu.
* Professor Miriam Meyerhoff, from the All Souls College of the University of Oxford. She discusses the functioning of language registers in non-standardized languages, highlighting their similarity to more standardized languages.
