The Andegerebinha language, also known as Andegerebenha, Andigibinha and Antekerrepinhe, is an aboriginal language of the Northern Territory of Australia spoken around the Hay River, Pituri Creek area according to Ethnologue. It was spoken by only ten individuals in 1981, so it may now be extinct. A study of its sound system was published in 1977 by Gavan Breen: Breen, J.G. "Andegerebenha vowel phonology". Phonetica, 34(5), pp.371-391.
