Title: Dictionary of Yugambeh ((including neighbouring dialects)
Written By: Margaret Sharpe

This book brings together all published or recorded information known to the compiler on the language of the Gold Coast, ueensland and its hinterlands, and neighbouring dialects extending to Minyangbal (Minjungbal)in the Brushwick River area, New South Wales, and the dialects spoken around Warwick, ueensland. Dialects of the same language were spoken in New South Wales, e.g. Gidhabal and Bundjalung. While Yugambeh appears to have gone out of widespread use possibly sixty years ago, there are many valuable word lists and grammars dating back to the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century. All entries in the dictionary are in modern phonemic transcription (with pronunciation guides), with all sources and source spellings included under each entry. The dictionary includes grammatical notes and an English finder list.
