Comment
Comments: 
According to the WA Handbook, this is a northern dialect of Inggarda W19. Dench (1998) distinguishes a northern dialect of Yingkarta from a southern dialect, but says no distinct names for Yingkarta dialects were recorded. Austin (1988) also says there are two varieties of Yingkarta, a northern and a southern. He mentions two Yingkarta group names, Manthi (W42) and Thirrily W46, the locations of which appear to correspond to a north - south division, though he does not say that these group names are also the names of the dialects. Further, in his 1992 dictionary, Austin refers to the two dialects as Northern Yinggarda (W42) and Southern Yinggarda W46. Documentation on Yinggarda W18 may be relevant.
