Comment
Comments: 
Capell (1963) and Tindale (1974) provide the location of Alura, but the former says there is no linguistic data. Based on the information available, Alura is unlikely to be a language name. Accordingly it is not included as a language heading in the Thesaurus.

Speaker numbers were measured differently across the censuses and various other sources listed in AUSTLANG. You are encouraged to refer to the sources.

Speaker numbers for ‘NILS 2004’ and ‘2005 estimate’ come from 'Table F.3: Numbers of speakers of Australian Indigenous languages (various surveys)' in 'Appendix F NILS endangerment and absolute number results' in McConvell, Marmion and McNicol 2005, pages 198-230 (PDF, 2.5MB).
