$40.00

What are the Australian Aboriginal languages like? How many are there? Where are they spoken? How are they learned by children? Are there dictionaries of Aboriginal languages? What kinds of new language have emerged in the last two hundred years? What is the connection between land, people and language in Aboriginal Australia? How does the use off English disadvantage Aboriginal people?

Language and Culture in Aboriginal Australia offers answers to these questions by providing a series of studies of aspects of language and culture in different parts of Aboriginal Australia.
