Comment
Comments: 
Merlan and Jacq (2005:2) say this is said to be 'heavy' or 'strong' Jawoyn N57. It is, however, not clear whether it can be treated as a separate dialect. Dixon treats this as a dialect of Jawoyn N57. Documentation on Jawoyn N57 may be relevant.

Speaker numbers were measured differently across the censuses and various other sources listed in AUSTLANG. You are encouraged to refer to the sources.

Speaker numbers for ‘NILS 2004’ and ‘2005 estimate’ come from 'Table F.3: Numbers of speakers of Australian Indigenous languages (various surveys)' in 'Appendix F NILS endangerment and absolute number results' in McConvell, Marmion and McNicol 2005, pages 198-230 (PDF, 2.5MB).
