Comment
Comments: 
According to McConvell (2006 p.c.), Jiyilawung K34 was a language located between Miriwung K29, Jaminjung N18 and Ngarinyman C27 and it has been extinct for 100 years or so. Jiyiljurrung D34 descendants now speak Gurindji C20 and are considered Gurindji (McConvell in Sutton 1995:109).
