Title: Dharumbal
Subtitle: The language of Rockhampton, Australia
Written By: Angela Terrill
Series Title: PL 525 Shorter Grammar
Description:

Dharumbal is the language associated with the area around
Rockhampton, in eastern ueensland. 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.
