  • Word Up

    I am intrigued and delighted by this program and Daniel Browning's premise to start it. I admire the quite courage, which in the face of appalling cultural genocide and aching loss, sets about retrieving these language, slowly but surely, one word at a time. I was especially taken by Daniel Browning talking about Bundjalung, his father's tongue, in the program which launched this spin-off from Awaye! Him taking about his nephew, his 'burudjam' and his 'baraygir' was especially moving.
