Shoebox 1 of 5. This box contains the first part of a Jarildekald vocabulary compiled by Tindale. The first card in the box reads: 'this card catalogue contains all the words collected by Taplin 1879 and the alterations suggested by [Albert] Karlowan. Written in Int. Phon. System [i.e., the International Phonetic Alphabet]'. Another card notes that Taplin's main source was [James] Unaipon, a Portaulun person. Before the first alphabet divider and the start of the vocabulary proper is a small group of cards that may be considered to be in the 'to be filed' category. The vocabulary is largely derived from George Taplin's 'Vocabulary of the "Narrinyeri" Language' (in The Folklore, Manners, Customs, and Languages of the South Australian Aborigines, 1879, pp. 125-41), and Grammar of the Narrinyeri Tribe,1878. Tindale's manuscript materials are also a major source.
