'Native Vocabulary. Etc'

This sub-series consists of four copies of a booklet 'Native Vocabulary etc' issued by the Western Australian Government in 1904. This booklet lists English words in the categories of 'Man, his relationships etc', 'Parts and functions of the body', flora, fauna, natural phenomena and other subjects. The booklet was evidently issued to settlers, police officers and other white people who were requested to obtain the Aboriginal terms and insert them in the appropriate place in the book. Bates has inserted a few Aboriginal words into one of these booklets but the other three are blank.

This series includes references to: Western Australia.
