Comment
Language comment
Dixon (p.c. 2007) treats Latamngit (Y30) as a dialect of Aritinngithigh Y34 on the basis of kinship terms in McConnel (1950), while Oates (1975:271,382) says that it is probably part of Linngithig Y26. According to Tindale (1974), Ladamngid 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 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.
