Comment
Comments: 
Ngarad is almost certain to be a variant of Ngarkat S9. Oates (1975:185) says Ngarat was in Wurm's 1970 classification, but Wurm (1972) does not list it (though he does list Ngarkat). This may mean that Wurm decided not to treat Ngarat as a language name, though the reference is dubious: Oates's 1975 bibliography lists Wurm 1970 as Languages of Australia and Tasmania, but this is Wurm 1972. Either way, there is insufficient evidence of Ngarad as a language name. Consequently, Ngarad is listed as unconfirmed.
