E16/E17/E18/E19 has two entries Gowli [gok] and Gowlan [goj], with the following information:

Gowli [gok] Gowlan [goj]
Classification ... Indo-Aryan, Central zone, Western Hindi, Unclassified ... Indo-Aryan, Southern zone, Unclassified
Region Madhya Pradesh; Maharashtra, Amravati District Maharashtra, Amravati District
E16/E17/E18/E19 Comment Speakers belong to Gowli caste. Surrounded by Korku. Surrounded by Korku. Belong to Gowli caste.

The information in (both) these can only match one and the same caste, i.e., the Gowāri (also Gaoli/Gowli/Gowlan) caste ( R. V. Russell and Hiralal, {} 1916 ), so at least one of the entries is spurious, and, on purely linguistic grounds, both are spurious, since the Gowli do not have a language that is mutually unintelligible with all surrounding languages ( George A. Grierson 1916 :554-555 , R. V. Russell and Hiralal, {} 1916 ). See also: Gowlan [goj].
