Paperback edition

The central north of New South Wales is the home of the Gamilaraay, Yuwaalaraay and Yuwaalayaay people, one of the largest Aboriginal language groups in the state. For many years their languages were in decline, but in recent years they have been revived by a growing number of people in the area. This landmark book is a result of their efforts. It contains:

  • the most extensive list of Gamilaraay, Yuwaalaraay and Yuwaalayaay words yet published
  • detailed information about words, and example sentences to illustrate their uses
  • comprehensive word lists to quickly locate words by their English equivalent
  • a helpful learner's guide to the grammar of the languages

The book is ideal for the beginner or for advanced speakers of the languages, or anyone else interested in learning more about Aboriginal languages and cultures.
