Comment
Comments: 
According to Smith and Johnson (2000), Kugu Mangk has been reported by some as a patrilect or dialect of Kugu Nganhcara Y59, but they think it is likely to be an alternative label for Kugu Yi'anh Y178. Similarly, according to Oates (1975:277), Kilham treats Yi?an Y178 and Mangk (Y174*) as referring to one dialect.
