A request by friends to have their story recorded led to the publication of Michael Aird's second book, "I Know a Few Words." With striking photography from Mick Richards, this attractive volume presents an oral history of languages in South East Queensland.

Interviews reveal the ex¬tent to which many Aboriginal people felt discouraged from speaking their traditional languages, and how sadly over the years these languages have become a mystery to younger generations. The book was launched inBrisbane last week and is available through Keeaira Press. PO Box 139 Southport Qld. 4215.
