Comment
Comments: 

The online Yolngu Matha dictionary describes yalukal as a clan.

Bowern says it is a name for the combined families of Walamangu N79, Walamirri N131 and Miltjingi families (2007 p.c.).

Schebeck (2001:16) lists Yalukal (N107) as a dialect of Nhangu language N211, but was unable to confirm its existence and based its inclusion on Warner's Yalukal people (1937, in Schebeck 2001:17).

For Yolngu language groups see Yolngu Matha N230.
