Wadjiginy, also known as Wagaydy, is an Australian Aboriginal language. Apart from being closely related to Kandjerramalh, it is not known to be related to any other language, though it has borrowed grammatical and lexical material from neighboring Northern Daly languages.[1]

Wadjiginy (Wadyiginy, Wagaydy, Wogaity) is the name of the people; the language is Patjtjamalh (Batjamalh, Batytyamalh).[1]
