Comment
Comments: 
Sutton (1970b) treats Gugu-Jilin (Y159) and Gugu-Buyun as alternative names and says Gugu-Djilin (Y159) is a dialect of Gugu Yalandji Y78 (1970a). Patz (2002) makes no reference to Gugu Dyilin/Gugu-Jilin in her description of Kuku Yalanji Y78. As Gugu Dylin is an alternative name for another language, it is listed as Unconfirmed. See and use Gugu Buyunji Y87, a dialect of Kuku Yalanji Y78.
