Words for Country - Landscape and Language in Australia

Words for Country: Landscape and Language in Australia. Tim Bonyhady with a story from Tasmania about the politics of place-naming.

Words for Country, edited by Tim Bonyhady and Tom Griffiths, brings together a collection of essays that show how the words we use to name or describe or discuss landscape powerfully influence and shape the way we experience and manage our environment.

Politics is at the core of their book, say the editors. Conflicts over land ownership, control and use loom large. And much of this politics and conflict has involved the replacement of European names with Aboriginal ones.

The transformation of Fraser Cave on Tasmania's Fraklin River into Kutikina Cave is an unusual example. Tim Bonyhady tells the story.

Stories and phrases can powerfully shape the ways we experience and manage our environment. What languages have been used to characterise Australian landscapes and how have they influenced the way we see and treat our environment? How do stories take root in particular places? How do we find the right words for those parts of the country that matter to us? "Words for Country" answers these questions while exploring the inter-relationship between Australia's landscape and language. Tim Bonyhady and Tom Griffiths have brought together a collection of essays whose subjects range from the Ord River in the far north-west to Antarctica in the south, from the centre to the coast, the prehistoric to the present. Their terrain is environmental and cultural, political and poetic. Words for Country reveals not just how language grows out of the landscape but how words and stories shape the places in which we live.
