According to Capell (1963, S33), the Gujangal (S50) people were referred to by Howitt, but nothing is known of the language. Wafer and Lissarrague (2008:108) suspect that Tindale's interpretation of the term Guyangal as 'southerner' (Tindale 1974:199 under Thaua) is based on Howitt's 'Guyangal-Yuin' (1904:81-2) which means 'south Yuin'. Based on the information available, Guyangal is unlikely to be a language name.
