First post! Woohoo! :partyhat: :silly:

Anyone want to start a study group for a Australian Aboriginal language?

EDIT: To further development this idea, I have a few languages in mind that I am willing to share resources for. Arrernte, Pitjantjatjara, and another one or two.

EDIT2: I've found some stuff for the following as well: Bardi, Yan Nhangu, Gamilarray, and Kunwinjku, if any of those are more tempting. :P

Sure, we could do that. Maybe Pitjantjatjara since I have Alitji in Dreamland in both Pitjantjatjara and English.

Anybody want to start a study group for a Papuan language? I have resources (not actually lessons, and in the case of Oirata, not even a grammar...) to share for Oirata and Teiwa. :P

So, you're telling me to not focus on my current languages, and get back into Arrernte and Zulu/Xhosa?

I'm not telling you to do anything; I'm just telling you I'm up for anything (which you already knew :P), but I'm more up for some things than for others. :)

But if this is a dilemma, I'll be glad to make a study group for (Light) Warlpiri instead. :D

Maybe a general Aussie study group? You can start with Warpiri and eventually we can do Arrernte (or anything else I have resources for really :P )?

Sure, but I don't know who's actually going to do Warlpiri with me. :lol:

If you share resources and the pace of study is veeery slow, I might. :lol:

Like I said on the thread I created based on the suggestion in the post just before the one I'm replying to now ( :P ), I don't have lessons for Warlpiri, but I have been getting material from a paper on Light Warlpiri. :D I have a link to that paper on the thread I started for Light Warlpiri. I'm fine with reposting it, though.

And yes, I'd say the pace of my study of Light Warlpiri is pretty slow. I think it's usually just twice a year...? :lol:
