Comment
Language comment
Breen describes Guweng-Guweng (E36) and Daribalang E33 as a dialects of Gureng-Gureng E32 (2009:247). Holmer says that Goreng-Goreng E32 and Goeng-Goeng (E36) are closely related members in the Wakka Group, in an eastern set which includes Kabi-Kabi E29 and Batjala E30 (1983:1). He notes differences in the form of some words between Goreng-Goreng E32 and Goeng-Goeng (E36) where a rhotic is replaced with a semi-vowel, illustrated in the dialect names (1981: 105).
