Body parts

Find a range of word lists on body parts to support communities in their work to revive, document and preserve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages. Some of these wordlists complement the Gambara Gamu Biyu body chart poster; while others have been collated from State Library collection items.

Note: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages are oral languages that have only been written since European settlement; there may exist variations in spelling and pronunciation.  The following wordlists should be seen as a guide only - always consult local language speakers/custodians as to the preferred pronunciation.
