Languages on the Signs in Burwood, Sydney

Jiawen Wu
Abstract—Research shows that aboriginal people, the Wangal people, had been lived in the suburb of Burwood for 11,000 years since the British colony arrived in 1788. After the British came, this suburb started to develop as many other European cities did. Houses, roads and other different infrastructural facilities were built and population were getting larger and larger. English is the dominant language in Burwood and this essay is going to present a linguistic landscapes study which aims at exploring how the languages on the signs reflect or interact with the local people and communities.

Index Terms—Linguistic landscapes, language, Burwood, multicultural, multiethnic.
