The 50 Words project aims to provide fifty words in every Indigenous language of Australia.
The words are provided online with community permission, and with audio provided by a language speaker. The languages and words are displayed on a map so that users can easily find the information relevant to their local area. We hope that this will be a useful resource for schools and educational organisations to learn 50 words in their local language, and for the general public to discover and appreciate the diversity of First Nations' languages around Australia.

The project is an initiative of the Research Unit of Indigenous Language (RUIL) at The University of Melbourne and First Languages Australia is pleased to be a partner in the activity.
