Thawa (Thaua, Dhawa, Thauaira) is a nearly extinct Australian Aboriginal language of New South Wales with only very few speakers including certain local Elders. It is sometimes classified with Dyirringany as Southern Coastal Yuin,[1] though it's not clear how close the two varieties actually were.[2]
