Formatted Abstract/Summary

This report was commissioned by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit at the University of Queensland, St Lucia, in consultation with the Gurang Land Council of Bundaberg. It was prompted by community concern to retain what remains of the Gureng Gureng language and investigate possibilities for its enhanced use in the community. Its aims, therefore, are:

•    to review the current state of knowledge of the language in written sources;
•    to review present use of the Gureng Gureng language;
•    to review the community aspirations for the Gureng Gureng language;
•    to make recommendations for a language program that meets community aspirations and takes into account the present state of the language.

It should be noted that although the spelling 'Gureng Gureng' is adopted by the author of this work, a number of other possibilities exist. Part of the work of any language program will be to decide just such matters, and the final decision will rest with the community.                    .....................................
