Description

The Dictionary of anatomy - Dharuk mala ga mayali' rumbalpuy is the first dictionary to translate anatomical and medical terms from English to an ancient Aboriginal language. This dictionary has taken six years to complete, and translates over 200 anatomical terms; including everything from DNA to tear ducts, into Yolngu Matha, the main language used in east Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory. It also includes innovative full colour graphics and examples of related pathology.

The health of Indigenous people is constantly put at risk because they do not know what doctors are talking about. This is a vital resource for Indigenous Health Workers, interpreters and health professionals working with Yolngu people who speak the Djambarrpuyŋu language.
