Ngarinyman Dictionary Launch & IYIL Public Lecture
To celebrate the UNESCO International Year of Indigenous Languages, AIATSIS, QUT and the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language (CoEDL) are pleased to invite you to the launch of the Ngarinyman to English Dictionary by Rachel Perkins.
Ngarinyman is an Aboriginal language of the Northern Territory. The dictionary is the first in the series of dictionaries published by AIATSIS’s publishing arm Aboriginal Studies Press.
The launch will be followed by the International Year of Indigenous Languages Public Lecture by Daniel Browning.
The United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues report that 40 per cent of the estimated 6,700 languages spoken around the world are in danger of disappearing, with the majority of these being indigenous languages, putting the cultures and knowledge systems to which they belong at risk.
Time: 5:30 - 7:00pm
