Madhi Madhi language
|Region||New South Wales|
|Extinct||late 20th century|
The Jitajita people are an Aboriginal group with close affinities to the Muthi Muthi. Their language has been studied in the 1980s. Yita Yita has a large number of monosyllabic words, consonant finals and consonant clusters. Many Yita Yita place names include the words tin meaning foot, and cabul meaning leg. It has been postulated that there is a relationship between the Yita Yita and people down the river.
