Comment
Language comment
Wilkins (in Henderson 2013:12) provides an overview of the Arandic languages with two major sub-groups: Artweye, with one member Kaytetye (C13) and Artwe (~Urtwe) composed of Upper Arrernte (Eastern Arrernte, Western Arrernte C47, Alyawarr C14 and Anmatyerr C8.1) and Lower Arrernte C29. See also Arrernte C8, Pertame C46; Lower Arrernte C29; Ayerrerenge G12; Antekerrepenhe C12 and Akarre C28.
