Title: Australian Languages
Subtitle: Their Nature and Development
Written By: R. M. W. Dixon
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521473780
Series Title: Cambridge Language Surveys
Description:

Aboriginal people have been in Australia for at least 40,000 years,
speaking about 250 languages. Through examination of published and
unpublished materials on each of the individual languages, Dixon surveys
the ways in which the languages vary typologically and presents a profile
of this long-established linguistic area. The areal distribution of most
features is illustrated with more than 30 maps and an index of languages
and language groups is provided.
