Songlines by Bruce Chatwin

As part of our work on understanding the culture of Australian Aborigines, we are studying a piece of text adapted from Bruce Chatwin’s famous book Songlines. Before we can explore the key themes in the text we need to make sure that we understand the vocabulary, some of which is new to us. We have identified 29 words that we want to know the meaning of. On Tuesday we’ll work together to find definitions of these new words.
