Paakantyi[aka Darling, Darling River Language, Kula]
Andrew speaks some Paakantyi words. Paakantyi is the language of the Aboriginal peopleof far western New South Wales. He shows how to put two words together, like wiimpatya + puungka becomes wiimpatya-puungka. He says the short form, wiimpatyuungka. Also, when you're talking about a particular Aboriginal or a particular humpy, you say wiimpatya-na puungka. Sometimes two words put together make a new idiomatic expression: thungka,night, + yarra, tree, becomes thungka-yarra, which means a grave.
