    Australian Aboriginal English

    Post  Guest on Fri Jan 07, 2011 8:34 pm

    Australian Aboriginal English (AAE) is a term referring to the various varieties of the English language used by Indigenous Australians. These varieties, which developed differently in different parts of Australia, vary along a continuum, from forms close to standard English to more nonstandard forms. There are generally distinctive features of accent, grammar, words and meanings, as well as language use.[1] The furthest extent of the dialect is Kriol, which is regarded by linguists as a distinct language from English.[citation needed] Speakers change between different forms according to social talking.[citation needed]
    Several features of AAE are shared with creole languages spoken in nearby countries, such as Tok Pisin in Papua New Guinea, Pijin in the Solomon Islands, and Bislama in Vanuatu.
    AAE terms, or derivative terms, are sometimes used by the broader Australian community. Australian Aboriginal English is spoken amongst Indigenous people generally but is especially evident in what are called 'discrete communities' i.e. ex-government or mission reserves such as the DOGIT communities in Queensland. Because most Indigenous Australians live in urban and rural areas with strong social interaction across assumed rural and urban and remote divides, many so-called 'urban' people also use Aboriginal English. See the extensive research of Diane Eades for information and the impacts of these linguistic communities on the relationship between Indigenous people and Australian institutions such as the legal system.
