Comment
Language comment
Bowern (2001) says this is possibly a Karnic language, but that there is insufficient data available to confirm this classification. Austin (1990:172, 176) places Karuwali in his Central Karnic group, together with Yandrruwandha L18, Yawarrawarrka L23, Mithaka L34 and Western Karnic, which comprises Diyari L17, Ngamini L22 and Yarluyandi L31. According to Breen (1976:745), Garwali (L35) forms a dialect chain with Ngamini L22, Midhaga L34, Dhirari L14, Dieri L17 and Yaluyandi L31.
