Is kangaroo an Aboriginal word? What does brolga mean? Many of the words Australians us every day have their origins in some of the hundreds of Aboriginal languages once spoken across the land. Today about 20 of these languages are still widely spoken by children and adults.
This book offers Aboriginal words from around Australia arranged alphabetically in two sections, English-Aboriginal and Aboriginal-English, and includes a small selection of common phrases and sentences.
Aboriginal-Words of Australia is a fascinating reference for anyone interested in knowing more about the original inhabitants of this vast continent.
