Nyoongar Dictionary by the Rt. Rev. Bernard Rooney OSB, Emeritus Abbot of New Norcia. The book includes a comprehensive dictionary of the Nyoongar language focusing on what is now known as the northern dialect. Divided into two sections, Nyoongar­English and English­Nyoongar, the dictionary is the result of the author’s own grass­roots experience of Nyoongar as a spoken language and offers the fruits of his extensive research into the available written sources. These sources include published dictionaries as well as unpublished word­lists dating back to the foundation of the colony of Western Australia. See also: Nyoongar Legacy
