Scripture Resources

The Nyangumarta material available via this page contains both draft and consultant checked material. Whether a book is draft or consultant checked is indicated in each book’s introduction.  Since most of the previously published material was published in diglot form (Nyangumarta side by side with Nyangumarta English), we have endeavored to kept the diglot form for the online Bible. In the online Bible view, additional material such as Bible Readers series A&B, Bible Overview etc are located after Revelation,  For those wishing downloadable Nyangumarta English material, you may access this material here. It must be stressed again that a a fair amount of material is draft status and should not be treated as authoritative. The material has been made available as a working document with the hope that future translators can build on this work.
