Comment
Comments: 
According to Dench (1991:126), Mijaranypa is a dialect of Panyjima A53. Documentation on Banyjima A53 may be relevant. Dench notes the different dialect names reported in O'Grady, Voegelin and Voegelin (1966), Rtukurr and Milyaranpa. He explains that Milyaranpa is most likely Mijaranypa and that Rtukurr is possibly the word for 'straight' or 'correct', thukurrpa, a term which is often applied to a particular language variety or speech style.
