Location information
Heffernan (1996) distinguishes two groups of Luritja communities. The southern groups are those that speak with a strong Yankunytjatjara (C4) influence, and these, by and large, are made up of the communities south of Hermannsburg (including Jay Creek). The other group, Pintupi-Luritja, extends to the north-west and west of Hermannsburg.The major communities where Pintupi-Luritja is spoken are Haasts Bluff, Papunya, Mt Liebig and Kintore. (This roughly corresponds Tindale's location of Jumu (C11), which doesn't seem to be a language name.)
