Australian Languages is the magnum opus of Hermann Nekes and Ernest A. Worms, two missionary linguists who undertook pioneering investigations of a number of languages spoken in Dampier Land and the Kimberley (far north west of Australia) and to a lesser extent further afield, in Queensland and New South Wales during the 1930s and 1940s. William B. McGregor has revised, annotated and updated the original text of Australian Languages. Presenting a wealth of information on many now extinct or moribund languages, the book and its accompanying CD-ROMare of enormous value to descendants of speakers as well as to linguists, including Australianists, descriptive linguists, typologists, and historians of linguistics.
