Top End Linguistic Circle

The Top End Linguistic Circle (TELC) is an informal association of linguists and other language workers in the “Top End” of the Northern Territory of Australia. It has held a couple of meetings or workshops almost every year since it began in the 1970s.

The next TELC meeting will be held on 10 August 2018 ... see details

TELC participants have mostly been from the following organisations, as well as retired linguists in the area:

Meetings rotate among these organisations, and are organised by local TELC members. Often meetings are scheduled to enable visiting linguists to give presentations.
