Comment
Comments: 
According to the WA Handbook, this is a southern dialect of Inggarda W18. Dench (1998) distinguishes a southern dialect of Yingkarta from a northern 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). The language name with code W46 was formerly Thirrily. Documentation on Yinggarda W19 may be relevant.
