Comment
Comments: 
Ikarranggal (Y198) is classified as belonging to the Alaya-Athima language group, a set of initial-dropping languages not closely related to others of this type in the area. Alpher describes them in regional blocs, with Ikarranggal in the central bloc on the south bank of the upper Palmer River, downstream of Cannibal and Granite Creeks (Sommer in Alpher 2016:42). Other members of this group include Awu Alaya (Kuku Thaypan) Y84 ; Aghu Tharrnggala Y65; Awu Arungu / Awu Alwang / Agu Aloja Y219; Ogh Alungul Y199; Kuku Mini Y94; Ogh Angkula 197; Takalak Y125; Ogh Awarrangg Y201; Ongunyjan Y206; Kokiny Y188; Athima Y237 (2016:41-42).
