Summary "Warrabarna Kaurna! Reclaiming an Australian Language is a longitudinal study of the reclamation of the Kaurna Language, where Kaurna people are working in collaboration with linguists and educators. The book takes an ecological perspective to trace the history of Kaurna, drawing on all known sources (mostly from the period 1836-1858) and all known emerging uses in the modern period (1989-1997)."--BOOK JACKET
Notes "Based on a longitudinal study conducted between 1989 and 1997 which resulted in a PhD thesis submitted to the University of Adelaide in June 1998."--P. [1]
