Comment
Comments: 
This is listed as a dialect of the Western Desert language A80 by Wurm (1972) and O'Grady et al. (1966). Apart from this, there is no information available. In his later publication, Wurm (1994) does not include Tarpuntjari and it is therefore treated as an unconfirmed name. Consequently it is not included as a language heading in the Thesaurus.

Speaker numbers were measured differently across the censuses and various other sources listed in AUSTLANG. You are encouraged to refer to the sources.

Speaker numbers for ‘NILS 2004’ and ‘2005 estimate’ come from 'Table F.3: Numbers of speakers of Australian Indigenous languages (various surveys)' in 'Appendix F NILS endangerment and absolute number results' in McConvell, Marmion and McNicol 2005, pages 198-230 (PDF, 2.5MB).
