Murrinh Nganki (Our Language), 1.
Street, Chester; And Others
This primer is the first in a series of four trial primers intended to teach the speakers of the Murrinh-patha language to read and write in their mother tongue. The approach and method of this primer is eclectic, based on principles developed by Dr. Sarah Gudschinsky. It has been designed to teach the vowels "a,""u,""i," and "e" and the consonants "k,""th,""m,""p,""n,""l," and "d" in syllable-initial position, and "m" and "t" in syllable-final position. The grammatical units "i,""kanhi,""ngarra,""dim,""bere,""ngay," and "wanku" are taught in context as sight units and "Nalpu," Ngintinit," ku bali,""mi thanka,""yile,""thamul waya," and "thay" are introduced as sight words. A glossary containing all the words found in this book is provided at the end of the book. All 12 units are illustrated. (Author/AM)
