Comment
Comments: 
According to Hercus (1993), this is a dialect of Paakantyi D12. Note that Hercus's Paakantyi grammar and dictionary is mainly on Southern Paakantyi D61. Tindale (1974) says that both Wanjiwalku (D21) people and Maljangapa L8 people speak the same language, Wanjiwalku. However, Malyangapa L8 have their own language according to Hercus and Austin (2004).
