Wiradjuri taught in AU language center

Read the snippet in “Language centre open” on the Forbes Advocate page for details on this exciting new language center. From the content, it appears a more extensive article should be available in a few hours.

Wiradjuri (wrh) is a language spoken in New South Wales, Australia. Though the Ethnologue lists it as extinct, Wiradjuri elder Stan Grant and others have made impressive headway in revitalization. Unfortunately, the Wiradjuri Language Development Project site appears to be permanently down, though the Internet archive site Wayback Machine has 13 time archives of the site.

Of general interest is the page “Wiradjuri Ngawa Stan Grant Snr” by Stan Grant, where he talks about how to go about revitalizing a language.
