Comment
Comments: 
Hercus (1994:6-7) says Eastern Wangkagurru is one of three dialects of Wangkangurru L27, the others being Mikiri-nganha L51 and Wangkatyaka L54. Hercus says it is a variety of Wangkangurru influenced by Ngurlupurlu G40, Wankamadla C9, Yarluyandi L31 and Mithaka L34 that emerged after a group of Wangkangurru people settled in the Birdsville area. This variety has also been known as Karla-nganha meaning 'from the Creek, the Diamantina', a term originally used for Wangkatyka. Documentation on Wangkangurru L27 may be relevant.
