Comment
Comments: 
According to WA Handbook, von Brandenstein said that Tjarrgudi (A56) was the name commonly used for both Kartujarra A51 and Purtijarra A54. However, Oates and Oates (1970:72) earlier report that von Brandenstein collected data from speakers at Jigalong and this suggests that von Brandenstein treated Tardugi (A56) as a separate language. See also Western Desert language A80.
