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. Reported by the Geytenbeeks with only the dialect name and location recorded (in Crowley and Sharpe, 1996:33). The name Wudjehbal (E96) is derived from 'those who say wudjeh "you singular absolutive" (Rocky River)' ... ' (2001:7). See also: 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; Nyangbal E75; Wahlubal E16.2; Wehlubal E80; Wiyabal E16 and Yugambeh E17.
