Different words, different ideas: family talk in Arrernte

If you've ever wondered about the extraordinary web of relationships among Aboriginal people of your acquaintance, about what is meant by terms such as cousin-brother, cousin-sister, or how your friend can call more than one person mother, then this is a book for you. KIERAN FINNANE takes a look at Anpernirrentye Kin and Skin – Talking about family in Arrernte by Veronica Perrurle Dobson AM and John Henderson, the latest production of local publishing house IAD Press.
