An-ngale makka kah-ngeyyo?

What's the name of that plant?

Ma, ngurri-wokbimbu! A transcription exercise.

Note that the Kundedjnjenghmi dialect of Bininj Kunwok is used in this video (spoken on the Arnhem Land plateau around Manmoyi).

In this video made by Warddeken Land Management Ltd (and used with their permission here) you can hear Ngal-wakadj Lillian Guymala from Manmoyi teaching younger family the names of plants that grow in the rock country. If you want to know the English or scientific names of these plants, you can contact us (on the main menu contact tab). The transcript is for you to complete. All of the words are given below in the list after the transcript template, you have to pick them out of the list and fit them into the blanks after the time code. We have started the first few lines and the outline of some words. Now watch the video and see how you go. We'll post our version of the transcript (with English translation) in a later post.
