Pama-Nyungan Languages

(178 Languages)

The name "Pama-Nyungan" was derived from the names of two widely-separated groups, the Pama languages from the Northeast, and the Nyungan languages from the Southwest. The terms pama and nyunga are expressions meaning "man" in the languages from their respective regions. The Pama-Nyungan languages are the most widespread family of Australian languages.
