Aboriginal Place Names by A.W.Reed
Soft-cover. 13 x 20 cm. 135 pages. In ENGLISCHER SPRACHE !!!!
Where does the name Coolongatta come from? What does Uluru mean? So manyof our placenames are derivedfrom Aboriginal words, but their origins and meaning are unknown to most Australians. This new edition of Aboriginal Place Names give thousands of Aboriginal meanings from all over Australia, plus many new entrires for placesthat have recently been given Aboriginal names.
The book also includes a list of places that originally had Aboriginal names but which were changedto European ones - such as Mount Eliza for Gargatup. Finally, there is an English-Aboriginal wordlist giving the Aboriginal translation for many hundreds of common words.
