Comment
Comments: 

Schebeck lists Marradhanggimirr(i) as a 'warname' of the 'top' Djapu N145 (2001:94). A Djapu community leader indicates Marradhanggimirr is a name '... about catching fish in the swamp; It's a group of people who belong to Wulwulwuy country ... '(in Williams, 1986:188). For Yolngu languages see Yolngu Matha N230.
