See and use Nyungumarta A61.
Sharp's (2004:4) informants identify Kuntal as one of four Nyangumarta A61 dialects, the others being Ngurlipartu A72 to the south, Pijikala A104 the north near Lake Waukarlykarly, and Walyirli A73, the dialect spoken at Yandeyarra and the Twelve Mile Reserve on the outskirts of Port Hedland. From a linguistic perspective Sharp recognises only two distinct types of Nyangumarta, Ngurlipartu A72 and Walyirli A73, which she refers to as northern coastal Nyangumarta and southern inland Nyangumarta respectively.
In Tindale (1974) the northern coastal Njangamarda A61 is called Kundal.
