Kongal-boyal, of the Noongar language. The

people are mostly non-fluent speakers who

have a partial and passive understanding of

the language.

Work on the Noongar language’s recording

and analysis for many years, was undertaken

by pastoralists and linguists. Further

research continues to retrieve and develop a

substantial language database of all clans of

the southwest.
