Abstract: Aboriginal ways of using English by Professor Diana Eades addresses the way non-traditional language Aboriginal speakers of English use and speak English. Understanding Aboriginal ways of speaking English leads to a better understanding of Aboriginal identity, a better engagement in intercultural communication, and to learning about the complexities of how English is used by and with Aboriginal people in the legal process.
