Comment
Comments: 
Black (2007 p.c.) says that the following three names may refer to the same dialect: Guandhar or Kwandhar G29 (the name used by the Kurtjar G33), Gug-Nar (G49) (the name used by speakers of languages such as Koko-Bera Y85) and Kuuk-Nhang G50, which is the name used by the speakers of this dialect. Breen (2006 p.c.), on the other hand, suspects that these are names of closely related dialects. Previously conflated under G29, each is now treated distinctly in this database and the Thesaurus on the basis of there being distinct language data for each. However, given the varying uses of these names, documentation for G29 and G50 may also be relevant.
