Abstract

This paper reviews progress on the Ethnophysiography study of the Yindjibarndi language from the Pilbara region of Western Australia. Concentrating on terms for water-related features, it concludes that there are significant differences to the way such features are conceptualized and spoken of in English. Brief comments regarding a similar project with the Dine (Navajo) people of Southwestern USA are provided, together with conclusions regarding Ethnophysiography.
