Comment
Comments: 
Clark (1990, 2005) says this is part of a language continuum with Dhauwurdwurrung S20. Blake (2003) treats it as a dialect of the Warrnambool language S20 and Krishna-Pillay (1996) says it is a dialect of the same language as Keerraywoorroong S25. Documentation on Dhauwurd Wurrung S20 may be relevant.
