"This book provides a guide to the Aboriginal languages of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, and to the current state of information about them. Part A has two main aims: to show (a) which dialects belong together as variant forms of the same language, and (b) which languages belong together as related members of a group; and to provide information about the current state of these languages, and a guide to the resources available for language revitalisation, including a bibliography. It covers 14 language groups, with additional chapters on contact languages, sign languages and terms used in kin classification, as well as two bibliographic appendices: one on placenames, the other based on the work of N. B. Tindale. Part B presents a word-list for each language, with an account of the sources used in compiling it, and an overview of the languages phonology."--Provided by publisher.
