Comment
Comments: 
According to Oates (1975:140), Hudson reported that Njardi (A91) is a north-west dialect of Walmadjari A66. However, it does not seem to be recognised by Hudson and Richards, who have done extensive research on Walmajarri A66. Harvey (ASEDA 802) reports that Walmajarri speakers in the 1960s associated an area with Nyardi (identified as such on Harvey's map) but nothing is recorded of this language.
