To watch, hear and re-learn

electronic revitalisation tools for the Gumbaynggir Aboriginal language

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A project which was designed to support members who do not live in their traditional Aboriginal country and enable them to learn their Aboriginal language from available language speakers. This is done through the use of textual but more importantly verbal and visual cues into a multimedia format and onto a CD-rom so the language learners can see and hear the Gumbaynggir language being spoken to support their learning of their language. These tools should also re-vitalise other Aboriginal languages whose language speakers are extremely limited or now only surviving in a taped archival context. So archival language text can again become a living entity. It will also present how Community should maintain ownership of such knowledge and resources.
