Comment
Language comment
Hercus (2006 p.c.) considers Bulali (D11) a subdivision of Wiyakali D13, which is a dialect of Paakantyi D12. However, Hercus previously treated Bulali as part of Thangkali D14 and there appears to be no evidence to support Bulali as part of Wiyakali. Tindale (1974) lists Bulali (D11) as an alternative name for both Wiljakali D13 and Maljangapa L8. Note that Hercus's Paakantyi grammar and dictionary is mainly on Southern Paakantyi D61.
