Comment
Comments: 
The online Yolngu Matha dictionary describes ?aladharr (N113.1) as a clan-nation. Schebeck (2001:54) and Wilkinson (1991:13) refer to ?aladharr (N113.1) as a sub-clan or group of Djambarrpuy?u N115, affiliated with Dhuwal N198 language and Dhuwa moiety (Schebeck, 2001:16). Oates and Oates (1970:223) list Ngalado (N113.1) a Wulamba (a name given to the cultural area of N.E. Arnhem Land, called Murngin by Warner) dialect listed in Capell (1963) but not recorded by Schebeck. In her later work Oates (1975:388) deletes Ngalado (N113.1). For Yolngu language groups see Yolngu Matha N230.
