Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mirndi or Mindi languages are an Australian language family spoken in the Northern Territory of Australia. The family consists of two sub-groups, the Yirram languages and the Barkly languages some 200 km farther to the southeast, separated by the Ngumpin languages. The primary difference between the two sub-groups is that while the Yirram languages are all prefixing like other non-Pama-Nyungan languages, the Barkly languages are all suffixing like most Pama-Nyungan languages. The name of the family is derived from the dual inclusive pronoun "we" which is shared by all the languages in the family in the form of either "mind-" or "mirnd-."show more
