CAS110 Introduction To Yolngu Languages And Culture

The unit is designed to give and introduction to the life and language of Yolngu people in Northeast Arnhemland. The course concentrates on Yolngu Matha (Yolngu language) forms of Dhuwala and focuses on the everyday community version of the language. A basic grounding in the sounds of the languages, the grammar, and a basic vocabulary will give grounding for the learning of other Yolngu languages. Moiety systems, various aspects of kinship, Yolngu life, creation stories, songs, art and ceremonies, and how these relate together, will be presented.

Students should refer to the following site for further information on Yolngu languages and culture units: www.cdu.edu.au/yolngustudies/.
