Abstract

Dixon's achievements lie in the grammars he has written, of languages from Aboriginal Australia, Oceania and Amazonia; in the grammars he has encouraged many students and colleagues to write; in his theoretical contributions concerning ergativity, adjective classes, noun classes and classifiers, causatives, demonstratives, etc.; and in the way he has nurtured linguistics as a scientific discipline in Australian universities.
