This article explores public debates about credibility in media discourse regarding a Somali refugee who was raped on Nauru.

Cunningham, Una; King, Jeanette – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2019
Parents and prospective parents who speak a language other than English in New Zealand are in something of an information desert when it comes to how and why they might go about raising their children bilingually. While the official languages, Te Reo Maori and New Zealand Sign Language, have special status among the languages of New Zealand, other…

Sadow, Lauren – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2018
Improving the teaching of invisible culture is a recognised need in the TESOL sector. While there are both scholars calling for a more nuanced focus in classrooms, and teachers willing to take this approach, there has yet been no systematic approach developed for its teaching. This paper attempts to bridge the gap between theory and pedagogical…

Liddicoat, Anthony J.; Curnow, Timothy Jowan; Scarino, Angela – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2016
This paper examines the development of the First Language Maintenance and Development (FLMD) program in South Australia. This program is the main language policy activity that specifically focuses on language maintenance in government primary schools and has existed since 1986. During this time, the program has evolved largely as the result of ad…

Rubino, Antonia; Cruickshank, Ken – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2016
Australian research on immigrant languages has paid little attention to interactional approaches to language alternation as identity construction, and sites other than the family and the mainstream school. We argue for the need of studies that take into account a wider range of sites, in particular "community" sites, and adopt…

Cummins, Jim – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2015
Recent scholarship within the field of applied linguistics highlights the fact that identities are not static but are fluid, multiple, changeable across time and space, and always constructed in relationship to interactions with others. In other words, identities are constantly in motion. This paper presents a framework for examining the notion of…

Musgrave, Simon; Bradshaw, Julie – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2014
Social inclusion policy in Australia has largely ignored key issues of communication for linguistic minorities, across communities and with the mainstream community. In the (now disbanded) Social Inclusion Board's reports (e.g., Social Inclusion Unit, 2009), the emphasis is on the economic aspects of inclusion, while little attention has been paid…

Dixon, Sally; Angelo, Denise – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2014
As part of the "Bridging the Language Gap" project undertaken with 86 State and Catholic schools across Queensland, the language competencies of Indigenous students have been found to be "invisible" in several key and self-reinforcing ways in school system data. A proliferation of inaccurate, illogical and incomplete data…

Malcolm, Ian G. – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2013
Aboriginal English has been documented in widely separated parts of Australia and, despite some stylistic and regional variation, is remarkably consistent across the continent, and provides a vehicle for the common expression of Aboriginal identity. There is, however, some indeterminacy in the way in which the term is used in much academic and…

Sellwood, Juanita; Angelo, Denise – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2013
The language ecologies of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in Queensland are characterised by widespread language shift to contact language varieties, yet they remain largely invisible in discourses involving Indigenous languages and education. This invisibility--its various causes and its many implications--are explored through a…

Wigglesworth, Gillian; Billington, Rosey – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2013
There are now significant numbers of children who speak a language other than English when they enter the formal school system in Australia. Many of these children come from a language background that is entirely different from the school language. Many Indigenous children, however, come from creole-speaking backgrounds where their home language…

Hatoss, Aniko – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2012
While most language-planning and policy (LPP) studies have focussed on language decisions made by government bodies, in recent years there has been an increased interest in micro-level language planning in immigrant contexts. Few studies, however, have used this framework to retrospectively examine the planning decisions of religious institutions,…

Surveys revealed that upper secondary Turkish classrooms serve predominantly…

Devlin, Brian – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2011
This article analyses the status and future of bilingual education programs using Indigenous languages and English in remote Northern Territory schools. It explains why this educational approach is so contested at present, resulting in an unresolved situation which can best be regarded as an uneasy compromise on the ground and a stalemate at…
