Wardaman is an Australian Aboriginal language spoken in the Northern Territory of Australia by about 86 people. It is related to Dagoman and Yangman, extinct languages or dialects formerly spoken in the Nothern Territory, and is classified either as a language isolate, or the last remaining member of the Yangmanic language family.
Wardaman was formerly spoken in Scott Creek (Wugimadgun) and along the Katherine River (Mululeyn) and Victoria River (Langgay). Most of the Wardaman now live in or near Katherine.
