Yolngu-English anatomical dictionary

Annie: I just came across this article on the ABC website. Dr Marilyn McLellan has worked with communities to write an anatomical dictionary in Yolungu. I imagine it would’ve been a very challenging project to work on,needing in some cases to find the best equivalent constructions for some terms, but I believe it is a very necessary project aswell. I hope more dictionaries of this nature are made in the future, as it surely is a step towards health equality.

    Thanks for this one Annie. What a great project, and wouldn’t it be wonderful to see it replicated across the country. Perhaps some “Close the Gap” funding could be tapped into for this purpose.
