General Language Information:

The Alyawarr language is spoken by about 1800 people (2011 Census). The majority of these people are located in the northeastern parts of the Central Australia approximately 300 km north east of Alice Springs.

According to the 2001 Census the Alyawarr language has the sixth largest number of speakers of any of the traditional Aboriginal languages (excluding creole languages) making it a large and viable language.

The Alyawarr people have maintained a strong affiliation with their traditional country region with most speakers living in small remote outstations, hunting and gathering bush foods. There has been limited interference by other cultures therefore their language remains relatively preserved, with a young speaking population.

The Alyawarr MiniBible ‘Angka Mwerr-angker’ was published in 2010 and launched at Irrultja outstation (4 hours drive from Alice Springs) on Palm Sunday 2010, this is a diglot edition in both Alyawarr and English.
