Comment
Comments: 
Kofod (2008 p.c.) says a few Miriwoong K29 consultants told her that the language of the Wyndham area was Bayimbarr and it was like a 'Forrest River language'.

Location information: 
cf. Kimberleys map in Harvey (2008). Harvey gives the following description: The eastern, western and southern limits of Bayimbarr associations are negatively determined, on the basis of information on the limits of Gajirrabeng, Miriwoong, Ngarinyin and Wurla. However, it should be noted that these boundaries match reasonably well to Tindale's description of the eastern and southern affiliations of Arngga. The western part of the northern boundary follows from Tindale's description of Arngga and its neighbours. The eastern part of the northern boundary follows from the description given by Gajirrabeng and Miriwoong people of the associations of Dulngarri.
