Guyambal was described as a dialect of Bigambil by Capell (1963: D17) and Oates (1975: 222-3), although Wafer and Lissarrague did not find any clear links between Guyambal D35, Bigambal D34 or Yugambal E11. They place Guyambal in this east Queensland border areal grouping, which is defined by these language varieties' ambiguous relationships with neighbouring languages (2008: 333).
