Comment
Comments: 
According to Kite and Wurm (2004:6), there is no linguistic data on Jarowair and their status as a separate Waga-Waga E28 group (or dialect) remains questionable. It is probable that they were in fact part of a surrounding group. The map in Kite and Wurm (2004), however, identifies an area for Jarowair.
