Indigenous toponymy - Part 2

Jan Tent

    Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature review


    In our previous issue (September 2018) we looked at the nature of the Aboriginal toponymic system, particularly the ways in which Indigenous placenaming practices di er from European ones. In this instalment of the series, we’ll brie y look at how words and placenames from Aboriginal languages have been incorporated into the toponymy of Australian English. We encounter such names on maps, on road-side signs and in our postal addresses: they are well established in what we refer to as the ‘Introduced’ system.
