Comment
Language comment
Hale (1964) reports that his informants state Ngkoth (Y36) and Tootj Y37 are related dialects. According to Tindale, Nggot (Y36) is one of Winduwinda groups, Winduwinda being a cover term for twleve 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.
