Comment
Language comment
Warriyangka (W22) is a Pama Nyungan language of the Mantharta group, along with Jiwarli W28, Thiin W25 and Tharrkari W21 (Austin, 1991:20). According to Austin (1992), there appears to have been a sub-group of Warriyangga (W22) speakers called Malygaru (Tindale's Malgaru). Wadiwangga A39.1 refers to the same language and is no longer included in the Languages Thesaurus.
