La Trobe Seminar by David Deterding

On Thursday, 28 May 2020, Dr David Deterding gave a seminar entitled ‘Indigenous Languages and English in the Globalised Modern Era in Brunei Darussalam’ to staff and students at La Trobe University in Melbourne via Zoom. Twenty-one people from Melbourne and elsewhere participated in the seminar.

The presentation discussed the state of the minority indigenous languages in Brunei and current efforts to support and preserve them and the status of English in Brunei, especially whether Brunei English is evolving with its own distinct identity. Finally, it offered a prognosis for the future of minority languages and English in Brunei.

The presentation is now available on YouTube.
