Language and Culture in Aboriginal Australia

Language and Culture in Aboriginal Australia provides a series of studies of aspects of language and culture in different parts of Aboriginal Australia. Chapters deal with subjects including why a young Aboriginal woman in rural Australia might end up pleading guilty to a crime she didn’t commit; the picture of ‘language ownership’ which can be drawn from recent research on land rights; what we know of the first white settlers’ attempts to learn the language of the Sydney region; the first dictionaries compiled in South Australia; and how Aboriginal languages are now being used in the media and education.
