Comment
Comments: 

Schebeck (2001:54) lists Gulunggurr (N105) as a sub-group of Ritharrngu N104.

Scarlett et al (1982:159) mentions Gulungurr Ritharrngu. There is also evidence of a homeland called Gulungurr (Dhoyndji) and a surname Gulungurr.

Oates and Oates (1970:218) list Gulunggor as a Wulamba (a name given to the cultural area of N.E. Arnhem Land, called Murngin by Warner) dialect listed in Capell (1963) and recorded by Schebeck, but in her later work, Oates (1975:385) deletes Gulunggor.

For Yolngu languages see also Yolngu Matha N230.
