Comment
Comments: 
According to Tindale (1974), the Giabal seem to be the people who spoke Paiamba when met by Ridley at Yandiila in October 1855 (see Paiamba word list in Ridley 1875). Oates and Oates (1970:152) report a hand-written record on this language by West, but this does not seem to be in Mura. The classification of Giabal is uncertain. Kite and Wurm (2004:6) say it is unclear whether this group were Waga-Waga E28 or Bandjalang E12 while, according to Oates (1975:213), Geytenbeek agrees that it is not a Bandjalangic E12 dialect.
