A second edition of the Australian Standard Classification of Languages (ASCL) (cat. no. 1267.0) has been developed to reflect changes in Australia's language profile since the first edition was published in 1997. The second edition has a more comprehensive coverage of languages spoken in Australia than the first edition, particularly in regard to Australian Indigenous languages. It also includes some minor changes to the language groupings which improve the usefulness of the classification structure. A correspondence table between the two editions is provided. The second edition is expected to be available on the ABS website from mid-July 2005. For further information, please contact Rosa Gibbs email:, or telephone (02) 6252 7805.
