Description:The informant shows his photo album and gives background information to each picture (i.e. people, places, situations). Part 2 of 2.
This project documents, in as full a cultural context as is possible, the Iwaidja language of the Cobourg Peninsula, Northern Territory, Australia (Iwaidjan language family, non-Pama-Nyungan), still spoken by around 200 people but under increasing threat from English, as well as recording material from other languages of the region (Marrgu, Ilgar/ Garig, Amurdak and Manangkari) which are all reduced to one or two speakers each. In addition to linguists, the research team will include specialists in ethnomusicology, material culture / archaeology, and social anthropology, and will result in a comprehensive, searchable and browsable sound and video documentation, with Iwaidja transcriptions and subtitles alongside English translations, an Iwaidja dictionary of around 5,000 words, detailed phonetic analysis, and briefer materials on other languages of the area.
Archie Brown was born at Minarri, one of Reuben Cooper’s timber mills at the eastern end of the Cobourg Peninsula in 1941. As a young man he spent time working in Darwin, before moving to Croker, where he worked at the mission as a butcher and mechanic. He remains based at Minjilang today.
