Kaytetye recorded in 1959 by Professor Ken Hale
This collection consists of Kaytetye words and sentences as well as a story. The Kaytetye was spoken by six men, many of whom spoke other central Australian languages, including Anmatyerr, Alyawarr, Western Arrernte and Warlpiri. The speakers were probably born some time between 1910–1925. As far as we know, these are the first recordings of the Kaytetye language.
