Other comments: Ungkue is an extinct Kwi language or dialect of the Vaal River region of Mpumalanga province in North-eastern South Africa, with records of it being spoken in Warrenton. This was recorded by Karl Meinhof and was closely related to the neighboring Akkar language (or dialect) recorded by Dorothea Brig. These relate to his Nāng, whose speaker remains one of him as of 2023. It bears the Bleek label SIIb. Like 'Xam', 'Ungkue'.

Ungkue has only recorded traditional numerals from 1 to 4 years ago. New data for numbers after four is required.   

Notes: The symbol 'ǀ' is a dental click, 'ǃ' a (post) alveolar lateral click and 'ǁ' an alveolar click.
