Murrinhpatha is spoken by 2500-3000 people in Wadeye (Port Keats) and surrounding communities. Ian Green’s corpus does not contain any Murrinhpatha recordings, however Rachel Nordlinger and a number of other researchers have available material on Murrinhpatha, and we will be adding it to this page very soon.

Murrinhpatha was not included as a Daly language in Tryon (1974), but Green (2003) shows it to belong to the Southern Daly language family.
