Australian Aboriginal languages: Palatals

This video series explores the different sounds that can be found in some in Aboriginal Australian languages. It is important to remember that not all the sounds in these videos are found in all Aboriginal languages: there are many, many languages, and they are quite different from one another! What we have done here is identify a few sounds which are different from those in English, and focused on them.

If you have found a sound in an Aboriginal language that you'd like to learn more about, please send us an email:
