Notes l TASMANIAN notional set ¶ The total ethnic clearance of Tasmania was undertaken between 1805 and 1830, by speakers of [52=] English. The last 200 survivors were deported in 1829-34 to Flinders and other small offshore islands, and the last Tasmanian languages were effectively extinct before 1900 ➤ The only data are a few poorly recorded wordlists from 19th cent. and recordings of the last partial speakers in the early 20th . Degrees of relationship among Tasmanian languages and their affinities to languages of mainland Australia cannot be accurately judged, and the following classification is largely notional (and certainly simplified). It provides a framework to be checked and amplified against every surviving scrap of information on the peoples and languages of Tasmania # Reconstructed linguistic divisions have hitherto been labelled by points of the compass and foreign place-names. They are here renamed with place-names of apparent local origin.
