Comment
Comments: 
According to Capell (1963 A9), the only information available on Tjeraridjal is Tindale's mapping. Horton treats it as an alternative name of Nyanganyatjara A17, a dialect of the Western Desert language A80. Tjeraridjal may only be a people name (whose language is a Western Desert language A80 dialect), but it is treated cautiously as a dialect name in this database in the absence of a conclusive report.
