An early grammar of Tiwi

Early publication of this grammar of Tiwi has probably been of great benefit to Tiwi’s present day strength and vibrance. While other Aboriginal languages suffer for want of reference works, those with reference works stand a stronger chance of survival over these next 50 years of global language extinction. tmp_7135-162123296031183566899

Good luck (and good funding) to those involved in this work.
