Comment
Comments: 
According to Clark (1996:18), Tindale's Jupagalk is a reference to the Jupagalk gundidj, 'a Wergaia clan belonging to Jupagalk, a camping place on the Avoca River'. Based on the information available, Jupagalk is unlikely to be a language name. Accordingly it is not included as a language heading in the Thesaurus.
