David Nash has recently (ie tomorrow, US time at the time of writing) updated his web site on Australian languages and linguistics. It now includes an interesting graph of the number of publications relating to Australian languages, by decade. The second graph has the same info with a log scale on the y axis. The bumps are roughly correlated with the enlightment of social policy and the quality of race relations more generally – particularly the flourish around the beginning of the 20th Century, and the strong downturn from WWI to the 60s.
