Comment
Language comment
This is a dialect of Yawuru K1 according to Hosokawa (1991). Documentation on Yawuru K1 may be relevant. According to Hosokawa (1994:497), people nowadays use the name Yawuru to refer to the Julbayi Yawuru K48, also known as Small Yawuru K48 or Southern Coastal Yawuru K48, as distinct from the Minyjirr Yawuru (K2), usually known as Jugun or Big Yawuru (K2). Hosokawa's description of Yawuru (1991, 2011) is primarily on the Julbayi K48 dialect. McGregor (2010:209) categorises Jukun as one of the Eastern Nyulnyulan languages, along with Nyikina K3, Warrwa K10, and Yawuru K1. He contrasts these with the Western Nyulnyulan languages, Bardi K15, Jawi K16, Jabirrjabirr K8, Nyulnyul K13, Nimanburru K9 and Ngumbarl K4.
