Description

The book looks at Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders and explores the changing habitat of languages from pre-colonial times to the present. The contributions treat the languages from a structural and functional linguistic perspective, move on to the issue of cultural maintenance and then turn to language policy, planning and the educational and legal dimensions.
