Walpiri interjection meaning “yes!”
Dr Alison Holm is an experienced speech pathologist in Launceston, Tasmania with clinical and research expertise in paediatric speech, language and literacy with a particular focus on speech sound disorders and multilingual children.
Yuwayi is the Walpiri word my mum used throughout my childhood when she meant a resounding “yes!”
It is a reminder to me to deliberately choose to do the interesting, challenging, important and fun things in all aspects of my life.
