Comment
Comments: 
Dixon (2007 p.c.) classifies Njuwadhai as a 'probable' dialect of Yinwum Y29 on the basis of its location. There do not appear to be any data available on this language.

Speaker numbers for ‘NILS 2004’ and ‘2005 estimate’ come from 'Table F.3: Numbers of speakers of Australian Indigenous languages (various surveys)' in 'Appendix F NILS endangerment and absolute number results' in McConvell, Marmion and McNicol 2005, pages 198-230 (PDF, 2.5MB).
