Aboriginal Australians

There were almost 400 languages spoken by Indigenous Australians prior to the arrival of Europeans. Most of these are now either extinct or moribund, with only about fifteen languages still being spoken by all age groups.

The languages with the most speakers today are Arrernte, Kala Lagaw Ya, Fufu, Walmajarri, Warlpiri, and the Western Desert language.
