Bininj Gun-wok is a language of the Gunwinyguan family spoken in central Arnhem Land in Australia’s Northern Territory. It is described in-depth in Evans' (2003) grammar. In Evans, Brown and Corbett (2002) the name used for the language is Mayali, which is also contained in the name of one of the varieties of the language, Manyallaluk Mayali. Instead of Mayali, the name Bininj gun-wok is now used as the superordinate term to cover the different varieties of the language. Where possible the lexicon in the analysis presented here uses nouns from the Kunwinjku dialect, because this variety preserves the four-gender system.
