Comment
Comments: 
Hale (1964) uses Awngthim Y185 as a cover term for Mamngayt Y31, Ntrwa'ngayth Y39 and Thyanngayt (Y24). Thyanngayth (Y24) is the name used by the Linngithigh Y26 (Crowley 1981:149) Tindale (1974:189) says that this is one of the Winduwinda groups, Winduwinda being a cover term for twelve or more small groups each with a name terminating in '-ngit'. Sutton (2001:460) says that the origin of the term Winduwinda appears fundamentally geographical; centering on the Winda Winda Creek area and covering groups with lands between the Archer and Mission Rivers.
