Comment
Language comment
Breen (2006 p.c.) says there is a language he calls Wangka-Yutjurru which has two dialects he refers to as Wangka-Yutjurru and Wangkamanha G1. That is, Wangka-Yutjurru is both a language and a dialect name. Dixon (2002) lists the following 'further dialects' of Wangka-yutjuru G5: Rangwa G48, Yurla-Yurlanja (or Ulaolinya) G2 and Lhanima G53. He considers Wangkamanha (also 'Tharlimanha') to be an alternative name for Lhanima. The Queensland Indigenous Languages Advisory Committee () describes three 'child languages' of Wangka Yutjuru (G5): Wangkamanha G1, Rangwa G48 and Ulaolinya/Lanima, treating Ulaolinya G2 and Lanima G53 as the same identity, distinct from Wangkamanha.
