Nyoongar Dictionary by the Rt. Rev. Bernard Rooney OSB, Emeritus Abbot of New Norcia. The book includes a comprehensive dictionary of the Nyoongar language focusing on what is now known as the northern dialect. Divided into two sections, NyoongarEnglish and EnglishNyoongar, the dictionary is the result of the author's own grassroots experience of Nyoongar as a spoken language and offers the fruits of his extensive research into the available written sources. These sources include published dictionaries as well as unpublished wordlists dating back to the foundation of the colony of Western Australia.
