Bibliography of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, Australian Aborigines and Islanders Branch. Up to December 1988.
Poole, Alison, Comp.
This bibliography is primarily a listing of works by current or former members of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, Australian Aborigines and Islanders Branch (SIL-AAIB), but also lists works by non SIL-AAIB members that are included in publications edited and/or published by the organization. Unpublished works are not included, with the exception of those works for which publishing arrangements have been confirmed. The bibliography is in three sections. Section 1, Technical Works, consists of articles, monographs, and book reviews on linguistics, anthropology, literacy, education, and the science of translation. Section 2, Vernacular-Secular works, consists of several categories of works in Australian languages. These books are designed to teach people to read in their native languages, and include primers, workbooks, teaching guides, and readers. The latter includes books on folktales, legends, health, and social studies. Many are written by Aboriginal authors of various language groups with which SIL-AAIB has worked or is working. The third section, Vernacular-Religious Works, consists of Bible stories, Scripture portions, complete books of the Bible, Old Testament summaries, and whole New Testaments in Australian languages. Bible-related materials and songbooks are included. The latter two sections include books in diglot form. (MSE)
