Comment
Comments: 
Harvey (2003) mentions this to be a dialect of Jawoyn N57, on the basis of information he received from Merlan. Dixon also lists Ngarla'mi as a dialect of Jawoyn N57. It is, however, not clear whether it can be treated as a dialect of Jawoyn. Documentation on Jawoyn N57 may be relevant.

NT
Location information: 
while the area around the upper Ferguson river was apparently associated with the Ngarlahmi dialect of Jawoyn, the area immediately to the south of Pine Creek on the Cullen and mid-Ferguson was associated with the Dagoman-speaking Gayn-jiwortbort clan. Wulwulam appears to have bordered diecretly onto Jawoyn in the west. The upper Mary River above Moine appears to be associated with the Jawoyn language (Harvey 2003:297 - information provided by Merlan).
