Comment
Comments: 
Yininayi (L41) is a language from the Upper Barcoo; Breen describes aspects of grammar and compiled a wordlist from the Alice River materials, (List 152 in Curr 1886-1887). He concludes Yiningayi (L41) (and Yandjibara L44) is 'closer to Bidjara E37, Dharawala D45 and Wadjabangayi L39 than to any other language and, bearing in mind the poor quality of the data, could be mutually intelligible with them' (1990:76).
