Comment
Comments: 
Sharpe coined the name Yugambeh - Bundjalung as a cover term for a group of dialects from north-east New South Wales and south-east Queensland (2005) and produced a dictionary (on CDROM) of Yugambeh - Bundjalung in 2013. Smythe compiled a grammar and wordlist for the Casino dialect in the early 1940s, along with a substantial wordlist. Both have been reproduced as an appendix in Crowley 1978. See also: Bundjalung E12; Birihn E72; Ngarabal E92; Dinggabal E16.1; Galibal E15; Geynyan D36; Gidhabal E14; Mananjahli E76; Minyangbal E18; Nerang Creek language E77; Nganduwal E78; Ngarahgwal E79; Nyangbal E75; Wahlubal E16.2; Wehlubal E80; Wiyabal E16; Wudjebal E96 and Yugambeh E17. See Bundjalung E12 for items in the catalogue which include information about this dialect.

Location information: 
Crowley estimates '... north of the Richmond River as far as Galibal (that is before Kyogle) and as far south as Bandjalang (that is before Coraki). On the east and west, it would presumably have bordered on Wiyabal and Waalubal (1978:156).
