Comment
Comments: 
Von Brandenstein lists Windaga as one of his six 'Dundas District dialects' but puts a question mark after this name. He says it is a tribal name and that he is not sure if it 'belongs to Njagi-Njagi' A1 (which is outside of his 'Dundas district'). There is no language data and only three catalogue records in the AIATSIS collection appear to be relevant, each of which contains the same minimal information from von Brandenstein. Consequently, Windaga is not included as a language heading in the Thesaurus.
