Kofod (2008 p.c.) says that several Gija K20 people told her that the language of the area around Doon Doon north of Turkey Creek was like Gija and called Giwajbem, but one person also said that the language from that area was called Jarrag.

Speaker numbers for ‘NILS 2004’ and ‘2005 estimate’ come from 'Table F.3: Numbers of speakers of Australian Indigenous languages (various surveys)' in 'Appendix F NILS endangerment and absolute number results' in McConvell, Marmion and McNicol 2005, pages 198-230 (PDF, 2.5MB).
