Comment
Comments: 
Capell lists Wurangung, alternate name Yadaneru, Jeteneru (1963:Y136). Tindale lists Wurangung as an alternate name for Jeteneru (1974:170). Laycock says that Capell (1963: Y136) has 'probably subsumed' Parimankutima Y195 under Wurungang (Y66). This possibly follows West, who described Wurangung and Parimankutinma as dialects of the same language. According to Bruce Rigsby the language West recorded c1960 is Kuku Thaypan Y84 (pers. comm. in Godman 1993:7) and is not included for analysis by Godman in her 1993 study of Rumanggudinhma Y195. In his language map, Laycock places Parimankutinma and Wurungang under a 'Wurangung subgroup' (Laycock, 1969:71, 95, 97). It is interesting to note Laycock's Parimankutinma informants are also described as speakers of '... this language Parimankutinma or Wurangung' (1969:75). One of these people is Frank Curr, who was the speaker of 'Wurangung' recorded by West.
