Language comment
Von Brandenstein says that Padupadu (also Padhupadhu) is a term for respect language used by 'at least a dozen languages or dialects in and beyond the Pilbara' (1982:33). He explains that these respect languages differ from ordinary speech mostly in the lexicon and provides data for Padupadu languages in Pandjima A53, Jindjiparndi W37, Ngarluma W38 and Njijapali A50, each of them distinct. Von Brandenstein (1968:2) also notes an emerging 'unified respect language for Jindjiparndi, Ngarluma, and to an extend Pandjima, together'. The Thesaurus treats Padupadu languages as dialects of their respective languages.
