Comment
Comments: 
Tindale says that Jinigudira (W54) people spoke a language close to Talandji W26 and were sometimes considered to be 'western Talandji', however, his informants were sure that they had possessed separate identities for a long time (1974:243). According to Deak (2008 p.c.), her source suspects that Yinigudira is not a people or language name, but possibly a sacred site for the Bayungu W23.
