Comment
Language comment
On the basis of Aboriginal Protectorate records and Dawson (1881), Clark (1996, 2005) identifies three related dialects: Pirtpirtwurrung S86, Knenknenwurrung S26.1 and Djabwurrung (S26). Clark uses Djabwurrung as both language and dialect name based on the fact that Dawson refers to Djab wurrung (S26) as one of four main languages spoken in western Victoria (Clark 2005:11).
