Paŋkala, South Australia, C. W. Schürmann 1884

Drawer 2 of 2. The cards in this drawer represent the second part (P-W) of CW Schürmann'sA Vocabulary of the Parnkalla Language, 1844, with Schürmann's manuscript additions and an occassional addition by Tindale from his own manuscript materials. The museum's copy of Schürmann 1844, from which Tindale apparently worked, is held in Special Collections. Inside the front cover Tindale explains that the book was: 'received from the Public Library. This copy was bound and given to the S.A. Museum as return for the gift to them of Schürmann's own copy with his manuscript additions. There are additional annotations by N.B. Tindale'.
The drawer also contains a string-bound set of cards entitled by Tindale: 'Schürmann's ms additions to Paŋkala (Parnkalla) Vocabulary. Note: the new grammatical forms have not been listed. With casual additions by Tindale to Paŋkala, Jadliaura etc.'. A single card containing data drawn from Tindale's manuscript materials has been added to the set.

Directly preceding this set of card is a folded piece of paper containing notes on orthographics. This information suggests that Tindale worked with these materials in the early-mid 1930s.
