Comment
Language comment
Wafer and Lissarrague (2008:303) mention an unpublished manuscript on Malynagapa grammar by Austin (1978). This material is not incorporated in the documentation score. Tindale (1974) says that in his earlier work he included Ngurunta L65 within Maljangapa (L8), but in his 1974 work, he makes a distinction between the two. He says that the survivors of Ngurunta resided with Maljanjapa in post-European times. Further, Tindale says that both Wanjiwalku D21 people and Maljangapa people speak the same language, Wanjiwalku. According to Hercus and Austin (2004), however, Malyangapa had their own language. Wadigali L12 may be a dialect of Malyangapa, as reported by Capell (1963) and Oates (1975), both based on Wurm who uses the word 'probably' in describign this relationship. Beckett, Hercus and Martin (2008) say Wadikali L12 is part of the 'closely-knit subgroup of Yarli languages' but they do not mention dialect status. The Mobile Language Team web site locates Wadigali to the 'north of the closely related language / dialect Malyangapa'. Yardliyawara L7 is another potential dialect of Malyangapa, though Hercus and Austin (2004) only say that Yardliyawara and Malyangapa are 'close'.
