Comments on subclassification

Barry Alpher 2016

AES status:
Kawarrang-Ogh Undjan (NOCODE_Kawarrang-Ogh-Undjan-NOCODE_Kawarrang-Ogh-Undjan) = 10 (Extinct).

The language consisting of the two dialects Kawarrang and Ogh Undjan is missing from E16/E17/E18/E19/E20/E21/E22/E23/E24/E25/E26/E27. There is a Gugu Mini [ggm] entry and the name Gugu Mini has been applied to Ogh Undjan ( Bruce A. Sommer 1997: 1-3 , Bruce A. Sommer 1976: 133-144 ) as well as to Ikarranggal [ikr] ( Bruce A. Sommer no date: 1-2 , Bruce A. Sommer 1976: 133-144 ), but the [ggm]-entry is classified as a Rarmul Pama language, implying that it refers to Ikarrangal rather than Kawarrang-Ogh Undjan (which is not a Rarmul Pama language). The closest relative of Ogh Undjan is Ow Oykangand or possibly Kuuk Thayoore but they are not as close as to be even nearly intelligible ( Sommer, Bruce A. 1969: 12 , Paul Black 2004: 253 ). See also: Gugu Mini [ggm], Ikaranggal [ikr].
