Abstract

For the last decade Ian Malcolm's research and teaching has been focused on Englishes in Australia, especially Aboriginal Australian English. By studying the linguistic particularities of indigenized English, the Professor emeritus of Edith Cowan University opposes its subordination. The Following interview is primarily based on his text :The ownership of Aboriginal English in Australia:, where after studying the phenomenon of postcolonial indigenization of English, Ian Malcolm tries to elaborate on handling of the bidialectal tension between mother tongue and school taught English affecting Aboriginal Australians.
