Comment
Comments: 
This is a northern dialect of Paakantyi D12, along with Kurnu D25 and Naualko D19 (Hercus, 1993:3). Curr (1886-7) contains a vocabulary by Scrivener and there is important manuscript material from RH Mathews dealing with the grammar. PaaRuntyi shares some grammatical features with Kurnu and differs from Southern forms of Paakantyi in tense formation. In vocabulary it is closest to Pantyikali D17. Mrs Hannah Quayle provided Wurm with grammatical information and discussed traditional information with Jeremy Beckett (Hercus, 1993:11). Note that Hercus' Paakantyi grammar and dictionary is mainly on Southern Paakantyi D61 but includes PaaRuntyi vocabulary. The rhotic (r sound) in the language name is a retroflex glide (Hercus, 1993:13).
