A Note on Nomenclature

Strictly speaking "Aboriginal" is an adjective and "Aborigine" is a noun. It is therefore correct to refer either to "the Aboriginal Australians" or to "the Australian Aborigines," but not to "the Australian Aboriginals". This latter usage is, however, very common. This is partly because Aboriginal people increasingly dislike being called "Aborigines". (Note that the once-common abbreviation "Abo" is now considered highly offensive.) Today the preferred usages are "Aboriginal people" (as in, "This is what Aboriginal people want") or "indigenous Australians".
