Dixon R.M.W. Australian Languages: Their Nature and Development
Cambridge Language Surveys
Pages: 778
Publisher: Cambridge University Press (2004)
Quality: good: pdf

Aboriginal people have been in Australia for at least 40,000 years, speaking about 250 languages. Through examination of published and unpublished materials on each of the individual languages, Professor Dixon surveys the ways in which the languages vary typologically and presents a profile of this long-established linguistic area. The areal distribution of most features is illustrated with more than 30 maps and an index of languages and language groups is provided. Professor Dixon, a pioneering scholar in the field, brings a unique perspective to this diverse and complex material.

However, no one has so far attempted a book-length cross-linguistic typological study of the phenomenon, which would provide a comprehensive analytic framework, based on a wide range of languages of different typological profiles and genetic affiliations. The purpose of this volume is to fill th...
