Caitlin: In building upon the use of loan words that we have seen (such as in 5-4.1 Loan Words Dixon [pp 121]), I found this clip interesting as I was able to hear English loan words as they are being used in the Djinang language.
Additionally, the comments on this video are extremely interesting. Usually YouTube comments are best to be avoided (!), but there are some comments here that provoke thought, and clearly there are a lot of strong opinions as to the use of Djinang language. There seems to be a theme where people express that they would appreciate subtitles, which I think is a positive reflection on people genuinely being interested in Australian languages.
I would be curious to see how other 466 students take both this video and the comments. To see the comments you’ll need to go to the actual YouTube link.
