Comment
Language comment
Hale (1964) uses Awngthim Y185 as a cover term for Mamngayt Y31, Ntrwa'ngayth (Y27) and Thyanngayt Y24. Tindale locates Ndruangit at the same place as Ndwangit (north side of Mission River) but these two terms possibly refer to the same group. Both are listed under Winduwinda, a cover term for twelve or more small tribes each with a name terminating in '-ngit' (1974:189). Sutton 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 (2001:460). Donohue (1991) and ILDB treat Ntrangith Y39 as referring to the same dialect as Ntrwa?ngayth (Y27) following Oates (1975:270). Sutton (2001:459) says Ndrrwa'angathi (Y27) and Ndwa'ngith Y205 are distinct.
