Comment
Language comment
Austin (1990:40) summarises the various previous classifications of Pirlatapa, noting the absence of available data on the language. He examines a transcript of the last recording made of Pirlatapa by Hercus in 1966 and tentatively concludes that it is most closely related to Diyari L17 and, to a lesser extent, Ngamini L22.
