Albert Burgman started cleaning up this database for Wangka Maya in September 2019. Data originally entered assumed that the sources were correct and they were added as provided. Most following work seems to have been adding information and critical comment. The database is as up to date a record as we have on record
Kariyarra data was provided by Doreen Bully, Alice Captain, Len Chubby, Margie Dean, Raylene Gordon, Kathy Lockyer, Nyaparu
Lockyer, Gordon Pondroy, Bridget Warrie, Irene Roberts, Nancy
Roberts, Diana Robinson, Arthur Whalebone, Elsie Williams and
Norton Williams. Data was compiled by Sam Clifton, Sandra Clifton, Raylene Gordon, Bernadette Lockyer, Keith Lockyer, Janet Sharp, Nicholas Thieberger, Carl G. von Brandenstein, Diana Robinson, and Vicki Webb, who also put together the grammar with help from Raylene Gordon.
The Kariyarra Wordlist and Sketch Grammar were funded by the Endangered Languages Project, ATSIC, and produced by Wangka Maya Pilbara Aboriginal Language Centre, South Hedland, WA.
NoteL There are a lot of variations in the spelling of words. We have simply listed the variations as variants and given examples of the sentences from where the variations come. Whether these are typographical errors or true variants in the language needs to be sorted out.
