The Wangaaypuwan dialect of Ngiyampaa is the language of the Pilaarrkiyalu, Nhiilyikiyalu and Karulkiyalu people that come from the dry, riverless country of Western NSW. Some people still live in and around the ngurrampaa 'homelands' but many now live in larger towns and cities around NSW and other states and territories.

Ngiyampaa Wordworld: Thipingku Yuwi, Maka Ngiya; Names of Birds and Other Words includes stories, example sentences and songs. The second half of the dictionary is dedicated to bird names (and other words). The dictionary includes an English to Ngiyampaa finderlist, which is also useful for looking up words in Ngiyampaa.
