Topics in Eastern and Central Arrernte grammar by John Henderson( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eastern/Central Arrernte is a range of closely-related dialects spoken in an area around and including Alice Springs in the Northern Territory of Australia. It can be considered one of the strongest Australian Indigenous languages, with an estimated 2,000 speakers and continuing transmission to children. Nonetheless, Arrernte is under pressure and must be considered endangered.There are four areas of particular focus in this work. The focus on segmental phonology reviews and extends modern analyses of the vowel system, and in the consonant system presents instrumental articulatory evidence on the contrast between alveolar and post-alveolar phonological categories. Three fundamental aspects of the morphological structure are presented, primarily in relation to verbs. A range of complex verb types is distinguished, including an analysis of variation in which a single verb may alternatively constitute either a single word or more than one word. Prosodic units are shown to play an important role in a rich variety of morphological processes which include suffix allomorphy, reduplication, compounding and verb splitting. The final area of focus is verbal and deverbal derivation. The approach throughout is basically descriptive. Numerous natural language examples are provided
Carl Strehlow's 1909 comparative heritage dictionary : an Aranda, German, Loritja and Dieri to English dictionary with introductory essays by Anna Kenny( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An excellent heritage dictionary is a cultural foundation stone for any people. This translation of Lutheran missionary Carl Strehlow's previously unpublished comparative Aranda-Luritja dictionary from German into English is one such dictionary. Building on the work of A.H. Kempe, his predecessor at the Hermannsburg mission, Carl Strehlow had over 7,600 entries at the time of his death in 1922, making it by far the largest dictionary for any Aboriginal language up until the present. It was a comparative dictionary because he wanted to show that Aranda and Luritja were two distinct languages, although the people were neighbours. The enormously painstaking work of transcribing the original manuscript handwritten in four languages, Aranda, Luritja, German and some Dieri, as well as sections in an old form of German shorthand, has been carried out by Dr Anna Kenny. As a native German speaker, she has also translated Carl Strehlow's German glosses into English, checking many of the translations in close collaboration with people whose mother tongue is Aranda and/or Luritja, in particular Rhonda Inkamala and her parents the late Davie Inkamala and Trudy Inkamala
ARTHUR SCHU?LLER : founder of neuroradiology by John Henderson( Book )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Arthur Schüller (1874-1957) was a distinguished pioneer in the field of neuroradiology. His research rapidly made him the pre-eminent authority on the radiology of the skull and brain in the German-speaking world, particularly after the publication of his two books, including a monograph on diseases of the head, which became the standard textbook throughout the "classic era" of neuroradiology. He was a university professor at the age of 35, author of many scientific articles in medical journals, and is credited with the first description of three diseases and three operations. Schüller was also a refugee - fleeing Austria with his wife in 1938 and settling in Melbourne in 1939. The analysis of his career is woven into the personal history of his family. Tragically, his later years were darkened by the news from Europe that his two sons had perished in a concentration camp
