Comment
Comments: 
Sutton (2001:459) says Ndrra'ngith (Y39) and Ndrrangith Y202 are distinct from each other. Donohue (1991) and ILDB treat Ntrangith (Y39) as referring to the same dialect as Ntrwa?ngayth Y27, following Oates (1975:270). According to Tindale (1974:189) this is one of 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
