Description:This storybook is the result of numerous recording sessions in and around Woolianna, Northern Territory, Australia with some of the last speakers of MalakMalak and Matngala in 2012 and 2013. The story told is the one about the Blue-Tongue Lizard—Kumugut— that has found its dreaming resting place near today’s small settlement of Woolianna. The original transcripts’ editing has been kept to a minimum to capture the story-telling techniques and original conversational character of the recording sessions. This booklet contains six versions of the story record- ed in 2012 and 2013 in MalakMalak, the Daly River variety of Kriol and Matngala. The &irst version recorded on November 16th 2012 is the most ’arti&icial’ one of all and was recorded only with Biddy Lindsey as a mono- logue to provide a ‘neat’ and clear version of the story for this booklet. All other versions recorded in 2012 and 2013 respectively, have a much more conversational (‘true’) character in representing narrations of the story with and by a group of up to five speakers. Naturally, these later ver- sions have a more ‘oral’ character and are harder to follow from an out- sider’s perspective. However, they capture the unique story-telling techniques and the intricately conversational character of narration which includes interruptions and comments by all speakers present. To make the story potentially more accessible to readers of all back- grounds, a short English summary of the plot is provided at the end of this booklet. Some additions to the story told ‘off-record’ are also part of this version.
