Kunwinjku Kunwok: A Short Introduction to Kunwinjku Language and Society

 

 

 

For those with a background in linguistics, Nicholas Evans has produced a two volume descriptive grammar of Bininj Gunwok dialects. This is arguably one of the best descriptive grammars of any Australian language. It is a technical work designed for a readership with linguistic training but many sections are accessible for non-specialists. It is now out of print but available as a pdf file from the publisher Asia-Pacific Linguistics.

Murray Garde has produced an ethnography of communication. This is a description of how Bininj Kunwok speakers refer to other people in conversation. It is available from the publisher John Benjamins or from your favourite online bookstore.
