Comment
Comments: 
The Bundiyarra Aboriginal Community Aboriginal Corporation web site lists Nharnu among 'some of' the Wajarri A39 dialects, the others being Birdungu A40, Mileura A114, Nhugarn A71, Byro A113 and Ngunuru A112. Marmion (1996:6-7) does not include Nharnu in his description of Wajarri A39 dialects (MS 4096), but notes that it is definitely a distinct variety of Wajarri, though one that he only heard about after completing his honours thesis (Marmion 2015 p.c.).

Speaker numbers for ‘NILS 2004’ and ‘2005 estimate’ come from 'Table F.3: Numbers of speakers of Australian Indigenous languages (various surveys)' in 'Appendix F NILS endangerment and absolute number results' in McConvell, Marmion and McNicol 2005, pages 198-230 (PDF, 2.5MB).
