Dorothea Hoffman


Dorothea Hoffmann is a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Linguistics. Her work focuses on Australian Languages and Linguistics, in particular Jaminjung, Kriol and MalakMalak. Hoffmann is currently working on a thorough description and documentation of MalakMalak, a highly endangered language with eleven identified remaining speakers based in the Daly River Region in Australia. She aims to complement existing sketch grammars with audio-visual recordings that document traditional stories and culturally significant processes, and by compiling a 2,000-word dictionary.
