Summary
"Tjupan is a language of the Goldfields region, described by Berndt (1959) as being north of Mulga Queen. Tjupan people are originally from the Wiluna area, from Darlot, Carnegie, Wongawol and Sandstone areas, and possibly through to the Menzies area. Many Tjupan people have migrated to other locations throughout the Goldfield's regions. The language may be referred to as Tjupan, Jupan, Thuradha (Bates) and Tjuparn Wangka. There are also references to the language being the same as Tjalkati, Kuwarra and Kurlujarra. These may be language names or ways of referring to the language which is referred to as Tjupan in this dictionary. There are few fluent speakers of the language, but many more people have a partial or passive understanding of the language, or who identify as being of Tjupan descent. Tjupan is a Pama-Nyungan language of the Wati family, along with several other western desert languages."--Introduction
