Comment
Language comment
The identity of this name is not clear: Karenggapa appears to be either an alternative name of Wangkumara L25 or a dialect of Wangkumara. Capell (1963) reports that Garanggaba (L15) is listed by Tindale. Beckett (1958), however, says the name was not recognised by his informants and could be an alternative name for Wonggumara L25. According to Hercus and Austin (2004:213-14), the people living in the area identified by Tindale as Karenggapa were evidently speakers of a form of Wangkumara. Note that Tindale (1974) gives Reid's word list 'Torrowotto' in Curr (1886-87) as a reference for Karenggapa but this list is identified as Panytjikali D17 by Hercus (1993:11).
