Comment
Language comment
Tindale (1974) treats Ngandangara as the name of a group whose language is Jarumarra L56. However, according to Breen (2007 p.c.) Ngandangara and Jarumarra are distinct varieties which are in a dialectal relationship with Wangkumara L25. Bowern (2001:248) also treats Ngandangara as being very closely related to Wangkumara L25. Breen (1971:18) says that Palpakunu L64 is a Jandruwanda L18 term for the 'Wilson River group of dialects, i.e. Mambangura L20, modern Wangkumara L25 and Kungatutji L16, Punthamara and others now extinct'. Breen (1967:2) also states that the languages (though he goes on to refer to them as tribes) spoken along the Wilson River are identical: Bundhamara (L26), Gungadudji L16, Wanggumara L25 and Ngandangura (L30).
