Product Description

The Wangaaypuwan dialect of Ngiyampaa is the language of the Pilaarrkiyalu, Nhiilyikiyalu and Karulkiyalu people that come from the dry riverless country of Western NSW. Some people still live in and around the ngurrampaa ‘homelands’ but many now live in larger towns and cities around NSW and other states and territories. The first half Ngiyampaa Wordworld dictionary is dedicated to stories, example sentences and some songs and the second half is mostly dedicated to bird names, although other words are included. The inclusion of the word-endings in the section on bound forms is perhaps confusing in the absence of knowledge about how the word-ending are used but examples can be seen in the stories and sentence examples. The English to Ngiyampaa finder list will be the most useful for people when looking up words in Ngiyampaa. The Ngiyampaa Wordworld dictionary is a part of the AIATSIS Indigenous Language Preservation: Dictionaries Project. This project is a response to the alarming rates of language loss in Australia, and aims to support the publication of Indigenous languages dictionaries. A dictionary contributes to language maintenance, supporting written texts of all genres including important literacy development resources. Dictionaries are a valuable addition to the tool kit of language learners, educators, interpreters and translators. The Dictionaries Project will produce a number of much-needed, high-quality dictionaries of Indigenous languages, which will contribute to community efforts to revitalise and strengthen their languages.
