Extraordinary Bequest Extends Opportunities to Develop Indigenous Language Research

The Research Unit for Indigenous Language has received an incredibly generous bequest from the estate of Mr Duncan Elphinstone McBryde Leary, enabling the unit to continue and expand our work. Gifts such as the Leary Bequest extend RUIL’s capacity to meet the challenges and opportunities presented by Indigenous linguistic complexity.

In an article on the bequest, the director of the Research Unit for Indigenous Language, Assoc Prof Nordlinger states: “We are just so grateful for Duncan Leary’s foresight and generosity. This will have a substantial impact on Indigenous language research and the ways in which we are able to support Indigenous communities to maintain their linguistic heritage.”
