Comment
Language comment
There are some data for Lut̪uɣ (Y12) in Hale (1976: 8-9), who identifies similarities in vocabulary with Mpalityan̯ T25, but describes differences in phonological developments. In an earlier work he describes Lut̪uɣ (Y12) and Mpalityan̯ T25 as closely related dialects. Hale's comparison of kinship terms collected by McConnel (1950) indicates his data for Mpalityan̯ correspond with hers for Lɔ:tig (Y25) and her data for Tepti Y15 corresponds to his for Lut̪uɣ (Y12) (1964:252-3). Oates says that Debidigh Y15 is the same as Ludhigh (Y12) (1975:268 382). Dixon treats Luthigh (Y12) and Mpalitjanh Y25 two as separate dialects (2002:xxxi).
