This page leads to some data for Nhirrpi, an Australian language once spoken in the Stony Country of the North-Eastern corner of South Australia. The language is also called Palpamadramadra and it is very close to Yandruwandha. The data were recorded by the late Professor Stephen Wurm in 1958 from Mrs Alice Miller. You can download the files for research but please contact me if you want to quote from it. Note that all we know about Nhirrpi is from Professor Wurm’s 25 pages of field notes and one tape that he made (about 10 minutes long);
- wordlists (Nhirrpi – English and English-Nhirrpi);
- a set of sentences; the data from which the wordlist was compiled;
- draft of sketch grammar.
Please contact me if you would like to quote from the material; comments are very welcome. Please don’t email me asking how to say something in Nhirrpi, though; if it isn’t here we don’t know how to say it.
