Manytjilytjarra and Manyjilyjarra Paper released

GALCAC is pleased to release a paper studying the relationship between the Manytjilytjarra and Manyjilyjarra languages.

A copy of the paper is available here.

This paper is based on research undertaken by GALCAC linguist, Gizem Milonas with Senior Linguist Sue Hanson. 

Manytjilytjarra and Manyjilyjarra are very close speech forms and Gizem undertook an initial study to look at whether these speech forms are dialects of each other. Further research will be undertaken in 2023 to look closer at the relationship between these speech forms.
