#Gamilaraay Lingo lesson 3: The Body

Yaamagara welcome to the #Gamilaraay Lingo Lesson 3: The Body.

I would like to start by paying my respect to Elders Past, present and future from all areas.

Again I am not an expert but am learning and sharing my journey.

 

This week the topic was the Body. The words we learnt this week were;

 

  • Head – Dhaygal pronounced ‘Dye – gal’
  • Hair – Dhurrun pronounced ‘Du – Run’
  • Eyes – Mil pronounced ‘Mil’
  • Ears – Bina pronounced ‘Bin – a’
