Towards a reconstruction of proto-Western Desert, with attempts at higher level subgrouping, MS.
Argues that diffusion is a strong factor in the shared features of desert languages, and suggests that the evidence points to a historical southward movement of language in the desert. The author argues for two dialect types in the desert, one uses -pa suffix on consonant- final words, the other prefers vowel final words. Since southern stems are consonant final it suggests that these only recently acquired the vowel final rule. Warlpiri (NT) has more vowel final stems, suggesting that it may be the closer to the source language.
