This book is a culmination of the author’s work with the final generation of fully
fluent Jingulu speakers from 1995 to 2004, and incorporates the findings of
numerous researchers throughout the twentieth century. The volume begins with
some three dozen short texts, translated, covering a variety of topics including
food gathering, implement manufacture, and ecology.
The dictionary section includes a detailed Jingulu-English dictionary with
example sentences for each word as well as grammatical and ethnographic
notes, an English-Jingulu word finder, and a word list by semantic domain.
Both parts of the books are illustrated with photographs from the author’s own
