Summary
"Research from the Northern Territory (NT) has stressed the importance of the interpreters in court room interactions involving first language speakers of traditional, highlighting that the right to an interpreter for many Aboriginal people is crucial in allowing an accused a fair trial. Indeed in critical face-to-face court interactions interpreters are essential in facilitating communication between speakers who do not share the same language mastery or language repertoires. An Aboriginal advocate recently described Aboriginal Interpreters as the ‘heavy lifters in courts’ and other communication contexts, and this is certainly true. However, in a myriad of ways in addition to interpreter services, legal services and other organisations in the NT are seeking to improve communication, and with it legal process and access, in and out of courts. These include resources for lawyers and legal professionals, recordings of the police caution in traditional languages for suspects, community legal education programs, pod and vodcasts on legal matters and e-books in traditional languages to explain parole conditions. In doing so they spread the communicative load. This second matter is discussed in this paper. The following section focusses on new language varieties that are in many ways ‘invisible’. It begins with some terminology related to new languages, then discusses of the range and spread of these in the NT and draws implications for legal communication. Section 3 then examines innovative ways to improve communication in legal contexts, primarily for speakers of traditional language, but also for speakers of new language varieties. The goal is to consider evaluation and development of these programs and resources and to prioritise future research." -- From indroduction
