Abstract:

A single language appears to have been spoken in a triangle that
stretched from somewhere north of Lacepede Bay on the coast of South
Australia across to Bordertown on the Victorian border and south to
the coast where the mouth of the Glenelg in far western Victoria
formed the south-eastern corner. A consideration of various references
indicates clearly that the territory of the Buwandik, alternatively
Bunganditj, extended to the mouth of the Glenelg and further north it
extended to Coleraine and perhaps Balmoral.

 Practically all our data comes from old sources. There are twelve
sources of vocabulary for the language and two direct sources of
grammatical information on the dialect spoken by the Booandik or
Bunganditj. One source for the grammar is a sketch of three pages by
D.S. Stewart; the other is a slightly longer sketch by R.H. Mathews,
which exists in two forms, manuscript and published. Some further
grammatical information can be obtained from the 'Mount Gambier'
sentences in William Thomas' Dialogues in six dialects (details
below), and a few further scraps can be gleaned from the word lists,
specially from the one by Stewart which accompanies his grammatical
sketch.
