Christina’s research focuses on possession in the Miriwoong language (non-Pama-Nyungan, Jarrakan, Australia) as well as in the Kimberley Kriol spoken around Kununurra/ Western Australia. It was supported by grants from DAAD and FEL. As a Research Assistant and Lecturer at Prof. D. Adone’s Chair of Applied English Linguistics Christina has co-organised workshops and guest lectures about Indigenous languages of Australia. Her current research interests include endangered spoken and signed languages and their revitalisation, typology, and the morphology/syntax interface. Her recent conference papers were concerned with linguistic research methods in remote Australia, contributions of linguistics to Native Title Claims, and definiteness and possession in Miriwoong.
