Some lexical evidence favours a Wapei-Palei affiliation Donald C. Laycock 1968: 48 David Glasgow and Richard Loving 1964: 8 and ablaut distinctions for realis-irrealis are shared with Srenge and Walman and Yeri but these could all be retentions and do not automatically make Urim a Wapei-Palei language (p.c.
