dc.description.abstractO'Grady (1971:779) began his landmark review of lexicography on Australian Aboriginal languages with the rueful observation that in terms of quantity "lexicographic output...has shown a falling off since the turn of the century". He further observed that if the term 'dictionary' were to be confined to compendia of 5,OOO-plus richly detailed lexical entries, then "the state of lexicographic research on Australian (and Tasmanian) languages ... can be stated very simply: no such work yet exists". Even after lowering his sights to extend the term to reasonably sophisticated assemblages of 1,OOO-plus lexical entries, O'Grady could list no more than eight published dictionaries of Aboriginal languages.
