Genetic relations

John Z'graggen (1971, 1975) classified Brahman in his Madang–Adelbert Range family, which Stephen Wurm (1975) included in Trans–New Guinea. Ross (2005) broke up Brahman, placing Faita in Southern Adelbert but Tauya and Biyom in Rai Coast, though all three remain in the wider Madang–Adelbert family, and Isabi among the Goroka languages.
