Comment
Comments: 
Sommer could not trace the name Gudabal, he comments that it may be associated with Nar or Nhang G29 (Oates,1975:384). There is no item in MURA on Gudabal either. However, in this database it is treated as a potential language name as no other language appears to be identified for the area in which Tindale (1974) places Kutjal (Y95).
