Comment
Language comment
Previously Andajin was linked to the code K23 and Andidja was treated as an alternative name. Although information is sketchy and McGregor (1988) lists Andidja as an alternative name for Andajin, Saunders (2007 p.c.) believes the two names do not refer to the same language. Andajin K64, which appears more recently in the records, is treated as closely related to Ngarinyin K18 by Dixon 2002, McGregor & Rumsey 2009 and McGregor 1988 (among others), and is generally associated with the King Leopold Ranges area of WA. According to Saunders (2007 p.c.), Andajin is in a dialectal relationship with Ngarinyin K18 and Wurla K43. Ngarinyin is described as 'heavy' and Wurla and Andajin are described as 'light'. Andedja appears in the earlier sources (e.g. Elkin 1933, Kabery 1935) and is associated with the Forrest River region. Glasgow, Hocking & Steiner (PMS 656) say that Andidja (K23) has been variously linked to Wumbulgari K32? and Gunin K36, Wunambal K22, and Wuladja K43?. Capell (1963) says it is a dialect of the 'Forrest River' language, along with Gwini K36, Walar K45, Jeidji K32, Manungu K46 and Wembria K31, and Oates (1975) links Andidja / Andidjara (K23) to Wunambal K22. Tindale (1974) does not mention 'Andajin' but associates Andedja / Andidja with two different identities, as a variant name for both Wilawila K35 and Ngarinjin K18. Saunders (p.c.) says both Andajin and Andidja have been referred to as Arawari K28, which is a directional term meaning 'south' or 'south-east'. As K23 was originally assigned to Andidja, this code assignment has been restored and a new record and code for Andajin K64 has been created.
