Comment
Comments: 
According to Singer (2006 p.c.), Manangkarri is the language originally spoken on the two Goulburn Islands, possibly in the main on North Goulburn Island (Weyirra); Manangkarri and Mawng N64 are probably in a dialectal relationship. Berndt and Berndt (1970) report Naragani as the language of the North Goulburn Island; thus Dixon (2002) treats Mananggari (N183) and Naragani as referring to the same language.
