Comment
Language comment
The classification of Yirandali is uncertain. In Sutton (1973:44-45), Yirandhali (L42) is excluded from the Mari group since it shares less than 50 per cent vocabulary with its closest Maric neighbours. Terrill (1998:99), however, tentatively includes it, cautioning that it would be premature to rule out a genetic relationship between Yirandhali and the other Maric languages. Pooroga, Dalleburra and Yirandali (and variants) have all been used to refer to this language. Oates (1975) says Dalleburra is a group name. Tindale (1974) says Pooroga is the language name of the Jirandali people. Bennett (1927) uses Dalleburra as both people and language name. Both Terrill (1998) and Sutton (1973) use Yirandhali (L42). Curr (1886, vol. 2, pp. 460-463) gives two 'specimens' of language data for Pooroga, which he says were 'obtained probably from persons of distinct tribes’. Although no dialects are reported for this language, the lists are similar though certainly not identical.
