Gamilaraay and Yuwaalaraay are languages from inland eastern Australia, from northern New South Wales and the very south of Queensland.
Ma!Gamilaraay is a dictionary and phrasebook of these languages. Many of the words are spoken by Arthur Dodd and Ted Fields, Yuwaalaraay speakers who were recorded in the 1970s. They were the last people with extensive knowledge of either language. Other words and the phrases are spoken by contemporary learners of the languages.
The App has been made possible by the producers of Ma! Iwaidja, who shared their software and by funding from the Australian government. The project was coordinated by John Giacon and Brooke Ferguson.
