A dictionary supplement appears as Bowern (2003b) and a new edition of the dictionary is currently in progress. Aklif’s texts were compiled, edited and put in book form for the One Arm Point school in Bowern (1999). Aklif’s field notes are also extensive and were used in the compilation of this grammar.
