Quotations

  • 1892, John Fraser, An Australian Language
The Walarai dialect differs only a little from the Kamalarai proper; so also the Wailwun, spoken by the Ngaiamba blacks; for this reason, and because they have the classification of the Kamalarai, these are regarded as only subdivisions of the great Kamalarai tribe.
