Comment
Comments: 
According to Breen (2004:3), Yandruwandha speakers called the language of the area north of Wangkumara L25 'Parlpakurnu', meaning 'other language'. The term Parlpakurnu probably refers to all dialects of the Wangkumara group, south as well as north of Wangkumara itself, although the name Wangkumara was also used. Breen, however, uses the term Parlpakurnu only for the area north of Wangkumara, which includes Yarumarra L56 and Karendala L29. Given this, Parlpakurnu is not included as a language heading in the Thesaurus.
