Ontenu (ont-ont) = 6a* (Vigorous).

In E16/E17/E18/E19, Ontenu [ont] is given a separate entry from Gadsup [gaj] and its assigned territory on the map pertains to Oyana [auy] on extant survey maps ( Howard McKaughan 1964 , Arthur Capell 1948-1949 ). In fact, Ontena is place where a Gadsup offshoot lives ( Robin Radford 1987: 9 ) and they speak a variety of Gadsup [gaj] intelligible to other Gadsup dialects ( Frantz, Chester 1994 , Frantz, Chester I. 1976: 75 ). I wish to thank Tim Usher for discussion on this matter. See also: Awiyaana [auy], Gadsup [gaj].
