Comment
Comments: 

Schebeck (2001:17) reports that Dhalwaŋu N143.1 people have adopted Nuŋgubuyu N128 as their language and they are called Nuŋudulpuy (or possibly Nhuŋudulpuy) (N116.Y).

Heath (1980:3) describes Nungudulbuy (N116.Y) as Day'yi N118 speaking people, most of whom have been absorbed by the Nunngubuyu N128, and who are sometimes considered a sub-group of Madarpa N111.

For Yolngu languages see Yolngu Matha N230.
