Comment
Comments: 
Sharpe coined the name Yugambeh - Bundjalung as a cover term for a group of dialects from nort - east New South Wales and south - east Queensland (2005) and produced a dictionary (on CDROM) of Yugambeh - Bundjalung in 2013. Crowley described Njangbal (E75) as a dialect (of the Bandjalang language group) spoken south of Minjangbal E18, at Ballina and the mouth of the Richmond River. His sources include a wordlist in Curr by Ross, and two articles in Science of Man 1903 by Hargrave, also containing short wordlists (1987:150-151). The Languages Thesaurus previously listed Nyangbal under the code E16, but this is a different dialect Widjabal. See also: Bundjalung E12; Birihn E72; Casino language E73; Ngarabal E92; Dinggabal E16.1; Galibal E15; Geynyan D36; Gidhabal E14; Mananjahli E76; Minyangbal E18; Nerang Creek language E77; Nganduwal E78; Ngarahgwal E79; Wahlubal E16.2; Wehlubal E80; Wiyabal E16; Wudjebal E96 and Yugambeh E17. Documentation for Bundjalung E12 and / or Yugambeh E17 may be relevant.
