Arrernte is part of the Arandic group of the Pama-Nyungan languages, and is spoken by about 1,500 people in central Australia, particularly in Alice Springs (Mparntwe). It is one of the strongest Australian Aboriginal languages as a result of the isolation of the Arrernte-speaking areas.
There are five dialects of Arrernte, Central Arrernte (spoken in Alice Springs), Eastern Arrernte (spoken to the east of Alice Springs), Western Arrernte (spoken to the west of Alice Springs), Pertame/Southern Arrernte and Lower Arrernte.
