An annotated bibliography and guide to the indigenous languages of part of Western Australia. Information on individual languages can be found via a geographic, alphabetic, or language family index.
The production and publication of the printed version of this data was supported by the Pilbara Aboriginal Language Centre, under a grant from the Commonwealth Schools Commission, the WA Arts Board and the Western Australian Aboriginal Affairs Planning Authority.

The original work was produced in Nisus, then transferred to Microsoft Word for publication. These files were then read in Nisus and saved (using the Claris XTND system) as HTML documents. Subsequent addition of links from chapters to the annotated bibliography was done globally using Qued/M and Nisus' excellent regular expression facilities.
After the automatic processing, some editing was necessary. Not all links have been checked and some may not work. Apologies for this, but a difference of a space or full stop can prevent links from connecting and I figure the bulk of the links actually do work (thanks entirely to the editing skill of Joan Birney at Pacific Linguistics, Australian National University).
Originally published in 1993 by Pacific Linguistics, Australian National University.
