Comment
Comments: 
Douglas (1968), who collected some language data (PMS 5833), treats this as a dialect of Nju?ar W41. The location description given by Douglas (1976:5) for Tjapanmay ('New Norcia - Goomalling area') corresponds to part of the location Tindale (1974) describes for Balardong (W10). Further, Tindale says that the name 'Tap:anmai, instead of Balardong, is used at Goomalling. Tindale gives 'Nukarni out from Merredin' as the location of the Tjapanmay dialect mentioned by Douglas, but this may simply be the place in which Douglas met the speaker. It would seem Tjapanmay might be the name of the language variety spoken by the Ballardong W10 people (i.e. the people of Balladong).
