Australian-languages -- Supporting Indigenous Australian languages


Welcome to the Australian-languages list

The Australian-languages List was established in September 2010 by the AIATSIS Centre for Australian Languages (ACAL) for use by individuals and community groups who support the future of Indigenous Australian (Aboriginal and Islander) languages, including creoles and the many Aboriginal and Islander English dialects.

The List is hosted on the server at the Australian National University.

Hello everyone, this mailing list is provided for your special use and you are welcome to talk with one another about all things to do with language. We prefer you to speak to each other in a language we all know a bit about, English? But if you want to use another language that's ok too.

To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the Australian-languages Archives. (The current archive is only available to the list members.)
