More information:

    Distinct from the Arawakan Xiriâna (See: [[Xiriâna]]).

    The variety called Yaroame (ISO 639-3 code: yro) is considered by linguists including Helder Feirrera to be a language distinct from Ninam; however, opinions on this dialect-language division are varied, as there is some mutual intelligibility between Ninam varieties. For the purposes of the Catalogue of Endangered Languages, Yaroame is considered a variety of Ninam.
