Gaman Guladha

= Online Dictionary.

Yaama Maliyaa. David Nathan, on Groote Eylandt for the last few years, has been working on an online GY dictionary. It is not finished, but works, and the latest version is at:

Gaman is the suggested GY word for dictionary – based on garay/gaay ‘word, language, sentence’ and manday ‘series of steps, sequence.

One reason for the online dictionary is that Gayarragi Winangali does not work on all current operating systems. Another is that it is much easier to make changes to an online resource. Changes like additions and corrections to the original gaman, and also newly developed words.

Work is also progressing on Gadjigadji, a gaman GY app for iPhone and Android.
