Comment
Language comment
Previously this language was known as Nganyaywana. Crowley (1976:22-23) distinguishes Enneewin D64 from Nganjaywana (D24), noting that they were not mutually intelligible. In his later work, Crowley (1997) links the various forms of both names as representations of the same phonological form, distorted by ‘inaccuracies in the nineteenth century records’ (p. 281). Accordingly, he adopts the one form, Nganyaywana, for both languages, differentiating them with ‘north’ and ‘south’. Crowley (1997:284) says that a comparison of lexical material suggests the languages share about 65 per cent vocabulary. Wafer and Lissarrague (2008:213) make reference to a Crowley manuscript, ‘An introduction to the New England language’, which presumably presents the data on which Crowley bases his lexicostatistics. Crowley (1997:284) also says that orthographic variants of the name Nganyaywana have been used to refer to both languages. Wafer and Lissarrague (2008:201-202) select Anaiwan (D24) and Northern Anaiwan D64 as reference names and provide an in-depth discussion of their weighing of the evidence of phonological forms from the various sources. Crowley (1976:22-23) uses the term Nganjaywana (D24) as a cover term for two 'either closely related dialects ... or sub-tribal units'), Himberrong D69 and Inuwon D70.

Location information
New England tableland from Guyra and Ben Lomond south to Uralla and Moombie Range; northwest to Tingha; at Bendemeer and Armidale (Tindale 1974). (Tindale's location includes the location of Enneewin. This location is excluded in mapping the the location of Nganyaywana.) ... the Armidale-Uralla area of the Northern Tablelands (ALRRC) MacPherson recognises two groups: (1) 'Himberrong': around Walcha, Ingleba, etc: (2)'Inuwon': from Bundarra to Uralla, including Armidale (Crowley 1976:22-23).
