The cards in this filing drawer are predominantly based on the Ngadjuri section of RM Berndt's and T Vogelsang's 'Comparative Vocabularies of the Ngadjuri and Dieri Tribes, South Australia', Transactions of the Royal Society of South Australia, Vol.65, No.1, 1941, pp. 3-10. The drawer has two sections: a Ngadjuri to English vocabulary followed by a reverse English to Ngadjuri vocabulary. A card at the front of the Ngadjuri to English section contains Tindale's note: 'vocabulary of Ngadjuri together with Jadliaura, Wailpi, Nukunu and Pilatapa, the languages of the Flinders Ranges, South Australia'. It should be noted that while cards containing Jadliaura (15) and Wailpi (1) words are apparent, there are no Nukunu or Pilatapa cards present. The Jadliaura words were recorded in 1964, and appear in Journal AA 338/1/40/2, pp. 971-5. See also the Ngadjuri vocabulary and place name cards relating to Tindale's South East of South Australia place names project, AA 338/7/1/13.
Tindale Tribes: Ngadjuri; Jadliaura; Wailpi.
