Associate Professor Nick Thieberger is a linguistics academic and an Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellow, based at The University of Melbourne, who is digitising and archiving the records of our most at-risk indigenous languages.

Professor Thieberger and his team are building and populating the databases that hold these records, and developing methodology that will allow the public, and particularly speakers of endangered languages, to have greater access to the raw materials of language research including transcripts, words lists, and recordings made in the field.
