Batjamalh is the language of the Wadjiginy people whose country traditionally extends from Point Blaze, at the southern end of Fog Bay, to the mouth of the Daly River, including Channel Point, the Reynolds River estuary and mouth, and the northern part of Anson Bay. Batjamalh is not demonstrably related to the other Daly languages.
Ian Green’s corpus of Batjamalh is very limited and consists of less than 2 hours of elicitation.
