Comment
Comments: 
Oates and Oates (1970) list Malardordo as a Wulamba (a name given to the cultural area of N.E. Arnhem Land, called Murngin by Warner) dialect only listed in AIAS files, but in her later work Oates (1975:388) deletes it since there is no information. Warner (1937) lists Malardordo as the name of the people (meaning 'palm tree basket people') who speak the language called Lummami N147. Schebeck (2001:93) reports that this is a name for Lamami N147.
