Comment
Comments: 
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, also known as Small Yawuru (K48) or Southern Coastal Yawuru (K48), as distinct from the Minyjirr Yawuru K2, usually known as Jugun K2 or Big Yawuru K2. Hosokawa's description of Yawuru (1991, 2011) is primarily on the Julbayi dialect. Hosokawa (2011:5) says that Julbayi is spoken by 'Julbayi and other coastal groups including Burrany, Garraljunu, Lankanjunu and possibly Marrmarrma'.
