Warlpiri Picture Dictionary
The Warlpiri Picture Dictionary is part of an innovative series of illustrated Aboriginal language dictionaries. This picture dictionary is a valuable resource for school children and their teachers, for Warlpiri speakers wanting to learning Warlpiri literacy, and for anyone wanting to learn about the Warlpiri language of Central Australia.
The Warlpiri heartland is in the Tanami Desert, to the north-west of Alice Springs in Australia’s Northern Territory, though most Warlpiri speakers now live in the four communities of Lajamanu, Nyirrpi, Yuendumu and Willowra. Warlpiri is spoken as a first language by almost three thousand Aboriginal people.
