Comment
Comments: 
According to Blake (1979:183), Pitta-Pitta G6, Ringu-Ringu G7, Mayawarli L40, Kunkalanya G3, Ngulupulu, Karanya L32, and Rakaya G4 are dialects of a language for which there is no obvious name. Tindale (1974) treats Ngulubulu (G40) as a language name - it is the language spoken by the Karanja L32 group. Breen apparently collected data (Breen PMS 2929).
