Ta is a Nyungar word that means mouth/entrance/access to. You will often find ta in the place name sentences. Ta is a link word and is an important word to use when cracking the ancient Nyungar place names of South Western Australia. The word Da also has the same meaning, like many nyungar words the spelling difference is due to the person who originally recorded the word.[1] Katanning is an example of the usage of -ta.
