Forked Tongues: Bilingual Reading II
With over 200 different languages other than English spoken in this country, as well as 15 surviving First Nations languages, what does "Australian" literature really sound and feel like? This land abounds with so many different tongues, dialects, vernaculars, patois, pidgins (including our beloved "Greeklish") spoken by poets and storytellers whose work embodies the perpetual negotiation of lives between worlds – so many, in fact, that we couldn't fit even a few of them into one room!
