Abstract

As far as I am aware, the work done hitherto with
regard to philological studies of the Tasmanian language
has not been extensive. Ling Roth gives in an
Appendix to his book on "The Aborigines of Tasmania" an apparently full bibliography of the subject.
Among the works mentioned there as dealing with the
Speech of the Aboriginals, we find the following list of members who have also studied the subject in great detail.

In 1843 the Horticultural and Botanical Society of Van Diemen's Land was founded and became the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science in 1844. In 1855 its name changed to Royal Society of Tasmania for Horticulture, Botany, and the Advancement of Science. In 1911 the name was shortened to Royal Society of Tasmania.
