Comment
Comments: 
Natingero is listed as an alternative name of Kalaamaya A4 by Tindale (1974) and O'Grady et al. (1966). However, Dixon (2007 p.c.) treats them as distinct languages on account of their sharing only 43 per cent vocabulary. Similarly, David Nash's comparison of Adam's word list 'Natingero tribe' in Curr with a Kalaamaya word list of gathered by Tindale shows only 36 per cent common vocabulary.
