Comment
Language comment
The Bundiyarra Aboriginal Community Aboriginal Corporation web site lists Nharnu among 'some of' the Wajarri (A39) dialects, the others being Birdungu A40, Mileura A114, Nhugarn A71, Byro A113 and Ngunuru A112. Marmion (1996:6-7) does not include Nharnu in his description of Wajarri (A39) dialects (MS 4096), but notes that it is definitely a distinct variety of Wajarri, though one that he only heard about after completing his honours thesis (Marmion 2015 p.c.).
