Comment
Language comment
Jiwarli is a Pama Nyungan language of the Mantharta group, along with Thiin W25 and Warriyangka W22 and Tharrkari W21 (Austin, 1991:20). Jiwarli and Thiin may be dialects of one language (Austin, p.c., in Thieberger, 1993:106). The Jiwarli materials collected by Austin from the late Jack Butler consists of seventy texts, fieldnotes and about fifteen hours of recordings (1991:21). Not to be confused with Juwaliny A88
