To understand Aboriginal ways of using English leads to better understanding Aboriginal identity, a better engagement in intercultural communication, and learning about the complexities of how English is used by and with Aboriginal people in the legal process.
Aboriginal ways of using English is invaluable reading for university undergraduates in a range of disciplines but also postgraduate courses where there's little information available. Educated readers and students with or without a linguistics background will find the book accessible.
