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.
It is not certain if the Copmanhurst language, also known as Ngarabal (E92), is a member of this dialect chain, or a separate but closely related language (Crowley, 1978:157).
This name is not to be confused with Ngarbal E85 a Tablelands language related to Yugambal E11 (Wafer & Lissarrague, 2008:380).
