Comment
Comments: 
According to Morelli (2012:1) Yirraygirr is one of four dialects of a language called Yaygirr E10: Yirraygirr, Yaygirr E10, Yunggaya E9 and Birriin E72. Birihn E72 is generally considered a dialect of Bundjalung E12 (e.g. Crowley 1978 and Sharpe 2005). Documentation for Yaygirr E10 may be relevant.
