Comment
Comments: 
Anderson (1996) equates the term Kuku-Yalanji Y78 (or his use of this term) with Koko-yanyu (Y92) and Koko-Yalunyu in McConnell (1939-1940). It is not clear whether Anderson is using the term Kuku-Yanyu to refer to a linguistic variety. Patz (2002) does not mention Kuku-Yalunyu in her study on Kuku Yalanji Y78.
