    Why are there no subtitles in any Australian languages?

    At the time of the European invasion, there were a few hundred different languages in Australia. Of these, several dozen are still in reasonable or good health. Each one is associated with the people of a particular region, so there is no single Australian language that would be representative.

    For symbolic reasons - to acknowledge the original owners of the land upon which stands the University of New South Wales - it would have been satisfying to have subtitles in Cadigal, one of the Dharug languages, spoken by the Cadigal or Eora people. However, this language has no current native speakers, and only a limited vocabulary is known. The European invasion brought a combination of smallpox, warfare and competition for food resources, which had disatrous effects on the Cadigal and Eora people.
