Comment
Language comment
Attenbrow (2002) distinguishes Coastal S61 (sometimes referred to as Eora) and Hinterland dialects of Dharug (S64). Kohen and Steele (2009:223-24) differentiate between coastal and inland Dharug varieties, noting that Parramatta appears to have been the boundary between the two. 'Dharug' is used by the community to refer to their language, in contrast to 'Darug' (without the 'h') to refer to the people. (Richard Green via Cat Kutay p.c. 2013)
