Comment
Comments: 

Following Hercus, Wafer and Lissarrague divide the Darling River language into two groups: Southern Darling River includes Southern Paakantyi D61, Wilyaali (~Wilyakali) D16, Thaangkali (~Thangkakali) D14, Pulaali (Pulakali) D11, Wanyuparlku (~Wanyiwalku) D21, Pantyikali D17, Marrawarra D6, Parrintyi D48; Northern Darling River or Paakantyi D12, Paaruntyi D47, Kurnu D25, Nhaawuparlku (Nhaawarlku) D19 and Milpulo D59 (2008: 263-267). 

Hercus and Austin (2004) say that Wanyiwalku D21 is the language spoken by the Pantyikali (D17); in earlier descriptions (1982, 1994) Hercus lists Pantyikali as a language name (in Wafer & Lissarrague, 2008:265). 

The language name is constructed with 'pantyi' meaning 'creek' and the suffix '-kali' meaning 'people', which implies 'Creek people' (Hercus & Austin, 2004:208).

Note that Hercus's Paakantyi grammar and dictionary is mainly on Southern Paakantyi D61.
