I would also love to see more language materials published! We, the
linguists at AIATSIS, will be talking to the Director of Aboriginal
Studies Press and the co-coordinator of AIATSIS Research Publications
about the publication needs for language materials. Hopefully,
e-publications will offer us a solution. We will pass them what everyone
has contributed so far. If you have any other information or suggestions
about e-publications, please let us know.

Off the topic: I'd love to see Aboriginal Studies Press expand its range
of eBooks along the lines of ANU E Press. In other words, there is an
editorial or peer-review process to maintain quality for print on demand
titles (free as a pdf). So it's not vanity and you get lots of readers.
I'm a big fan of the concept.A couple of weeks ago I attended an E Press
book launch with no physical book on display at the eventthis was not
even remarked upon as unusual.

I would also suggest Batchelor Press. I don't know about
but they do require a subsidy for dictionaries. But it is local,
and they have some distribution as well as communities in mind.
The MILR funding round is coming up which could be a good place
to get some
publication funding from for something like this
