Comment
Comments: 
Capell describes Gingara as closely related to Bagu, Gambre K39 and Galumburu K41, all of which are listed under 'Dysedale River (language) (1963: K7). Gingara occurs in Oates and Oates (1970), but in her later work, Oates (1975:371) describess it is a place name, Ginggana, in Wunambal K22. Glasgow (nd) reports that people interpreted Gingara as 'King River' and that people known as 'King River' spoke Wuladja K43.
