The project will bring together a multi-site interdisciplinary team of investigators—Jane Simpson (Linguistics, Sydney University, Australia), I Wayan Arka and Avery Andrews (Linguistics, ANU, Australia), and Mary Dalrymple (Linguistics and Philology, Oxford University, U.K/PARC, California) . This collaboration forms a solid international team that can work effectively with the wider Pargram research group. Our research team will also work in collaboration with Indonesian researchers from The Faculty of Computer Science Universitas Indonesia Jakarta. We will also include a computational linguistics research associate, a PhD student and a data/manager programmer.
The initial stages of our research in 2007 was funded by a near miss grant from the University of Sydney. The major component of the project is funded by an ARC Discovery Grant.
