The cards compiled in this box relate to Tindale's concern with using vocabulary to map distributional patterns of cultural and natural phenomena across Australia. The cards, drawn from many Aboriginal languages, contain a headword that is the equivalent for 'fire'. The cards are reasonably well organised in alphabetical order. Mostly drawn from literature sources, but some are from Tindale's manuscript materials.There is also a small number of cards (0.2 cm), mainly bibliographic, at the front of the box.
