Lingo Episode #1: Language and The Way We Think

Lingo is a show that’s about our relationship with language, how it goes beyond communication, and the impact it has on our lives, cultures, and traditions. In this first episode, we take a look at how language shapes how we think about time and space. We narrow our focus on Kuuk Thaayorre, a language spoken in the settlement of Pormpuraaw in Cape York, Australia.
