Abstract:

The dialect of English which has developed in Indigenous speech communities in
Australia, while showing some regional and social variation, has features at
all levels of linguistic description, which are distinct from those found in
Australian English and also is associated with distinctive patterns of
conceptualization and speech use. This volume provides, for the first time, a
comprehensive description of the dialect with attention to its regional and
social variation, the circumstances of its development, its relationships to
other varieties and its foundations in the history, conceptual predispositions
and speech use conventions of its speakers. Much recent research on the
dialect has been motivated by concern for the implications of its use in
educational and legal contexts. The volume includes a review of such research
and its implications as well as an annotated bibliography of significant
contributions to study of the dialect and a number of sample texts.

While Aboriginal English has been the subject of investigation in diverse
places for some 60 years there has hitherto been no authoritative text which
brings together the findings of this research and its implications. This
volume should be of interest to scholars of English dialects as well as to
persons interested in deepening their understanding of Indigenous Australian
people and ways of providing more adequately for their needs in a society
where there is a disconnect between their own dialect and that which prevails
generally in the society of which they are a part.
