Comment
Comments: 
McConnel refers to the Wik-ampama (Y48) (Sharp: Kokiala) meeting with the Yinwum Y29, Kandyu Y44 and the (M)beiwum Y41 (of the Upper Watson River) on Merluna cattle station and Mein Telegraph Station (1939:57-59). This language is mentioned in Sutton (1978). Mbiywom and Wik Ompom (Y48) may refer to the same language.
