Sutton's collaborator said Wamin and Agwamin Y132 were mutually intelligible dialects, the former being 'light' and the latter 'heavy'. The same collaborator also stated that Agwamin was the name of the people, while Wamin is the name of the language, and Wagaman Y108 was an alternative name for both (Sutton 1976:116-117).
A comparison of two word lists collected by Sutton, one on Wamin and another on Agwamin indicates separate dialects.
Dixon, however, seems to treat Wamin as an alternative name of Agwamin Y132. Sutton (1976:118-122) provides a word list.
Some of items catalogued as being on Wagaman Y108 in MURA could be on Wamin.
Copperfield area, south of Agwamin territory (Oates 1975:297).
