Comment
Language comment
Ngan'gikurunggurr is a dialect of Ngan'gityemerri N157 according to Reid (1990). Note that Ethnologue uses Nangikurrunggurr instead of Ngan'gityemerri as the language name and lists Tyemeri (Moil, Ngankikurrunkurr) as one of the Nangikurrunggurr dialects. Documentation for Ngan'gityemerri N157 may be relevant.
