Nonsense

Today one of my staff came into my office and asked a question that made me laugh. It was funny because the question on the surface makes no sense, but to us two, and a handful of others, it makes perfect sense. Can you figure out what it means?

Q: "Wägilak and Rembarrnga... I mean Ritharrŋu... are blue?"
A: "Yes."

Tee hee.

A color-coded language families map?

Or reference to the library catalogue coding system?

almost there mami...

the question really being asked was 'are Wägilak and Ritharrŋu resources coloured blue (i.e. do i put blue paper in the printer)'.

If anyone is enjoying this game, then what are colours are these languages:
Alawa
Marra
Ngandi
Nunggubuyu
Rembarrnga

Oh oh! I know the answer.
Ngandi = Red
(I will let someone else have a turn now).

Marra = Green :) (but what is 'green' in Marra?)
