Comment
Language comment
According to Breen (1976:745), Yaluyandi (L31) forms a dialect chain with Ngamini L22, Midhaga L34, Dhirari L14, Dieri L17 and Garwali L35. Austin (1990:176) puts forth a revised classification of Karnic, with a (sub-) subgroup 'Western Karnic' consisting of Yarluyandi, Diyari L17 and Ngamini.
