Use of Dictionary
This website is being developed in consultation with Yugambeh Museum and the community workshops they are organising.
The words in black are common to the Yugambeh-Bundjalung language group, the words in green are unique to Yugambeh.
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.
The dictionary is a quick reference to words you search on the top of the page.
Search: This allows you to search by English and Language.
You can also select a preferred language- at present it is set to Yugambeh, but you may wish to search the surrounding languages, so if there is no Yugambeh word we show these.
You can also select an exact word or related word search (related searches include exact as well).
Sort: The dictionary provides an exact search where it can, or a related search if not. When you have searched a word you can then select other related searches on the right hand menu beside the wordlist.
Also by clicking on the column heading you want, you can sort by English, Language or Category (when we have those).
Word list: The word list may include some words with an audio file online. If so we provide a link to click - 'Listen' - to listen to the word spoken. The word may be used in a different context (eg mountain also is the word for hill etc) but it will give you the pronunciation.
More on a word: Beside each word is a 'more' link. If you click this it will provide more information on that word, such as example sentences and when and where the word was recorded.
