How to use this dictionary?

This website is being developed in consultation with Yugambeh Museum and the community workshops they are organising.

Some words have an audio resource, if you hover your mouse over the "Listen" link you can hear these words.

This is a work in progress so your feedback is important to us. Please read the instructions by following the "more" button below.
