Description

In this impressive empirical survey, Annette Schmidt analyses the changes that have taken place in the Dyirbal spoken by the last generation of its speakers.

Résumé
In 1972 when R. M. W. Dixon's classic grammar, The Dyirbal Language of North Queensland, was published, under thirty speakers of the 'traditional' language remained. Now only some of their children and grandchildren use the language; these younger people speak a simplified version.
