The revival and maintenance of Cape York Peninsula languages is the focus of the Language Application thread with the objective of using technical linguistic expertise and the latest research and innovation in language revitalisation for the benefit of the Language Nations of Cape York Peninsula.

The Language Application thread will engage linguists as Ancestral Language Facilitators (ALFs) to work with individual Language Champions, Ancestral Language Action Teams and community organisations to plan and take action for the future of their Ancestral Languages. Ancestral Language Action Teams will promote the use of Ancestral Languages and will work directly with community members on language maintenance initiatives.
