Location information
Yirrk-Thangalkl … around the mouths of the South and Main Mitchell Rivers; Yirrk-Mel … to the south, around 10 km north of Kowanyama. The boundary of Kok-Kaper and Yirrk-Thangalkl/Mel runs south of the South Mitchell River ─ but the people of that area were always "mixed" Kok-Kaper/Yirrk-Thangalkl, and nowadays their language identity is Kok-Kaper (Alpher 2007 p.c.).
