Comment
Comments: 

Oates and Oates (1970:65) say that Douglas found one speaker who claimed Bulinja (W43) was the original language of the Geraldton area. Douglas (1964) mentions this name. According to Clarrie Cameron (2009 p.c. via Henry Fraser), Pulinya is an old name for Nhanhagardi A93. Consequently, Pulinya is listed as unconfirmed.

Note that the identity of Nhanhagardi is also uncertain. See and use Nhanhagardi A93.
