Dharumbal is the language associated with the area around Rockhampton,
in eastern Queensland. Structurally, Dharumbal is in many ways typical
of what are generally known as Pama-Nyungan languages. It is
particularly notable in the extreme conservatism of its morpho-syntax,
while at the same time it has the unusual feature in this area of a
phonemic distinction between voiced and voiceless stops. This work is
based on earlier written and taped materials on Dharumbal, as well as
primary fieldwork carried out by the author. It aims to be a
comprehensive synthesis of all available information on the Dharumbal
language, and as such is intended to be a useful resource for
Dharumbal people, linguists, and other people interested in the
language of Rockhampton.
