Amal is a language spoken along the border of Sandaun Province and East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea, along the Wagana River near the confluence with Wanibe creek. Foley (2018) classifies Amal as a primary branch of the  Sepik languages, though it is quite close to Kalou.
Amal cognates with
Sepik languages are:
lal ‘tongue’ < proto-Sepik *ta(w)r
mi ‘breast’ < proto-Sepik *muk
yen ‘egg’ ak ‘house’
Foley (2018) notes that there appears to be somewhat more lexical similarities between Amal and the
Tama languages, but does not consider them to form a group with each other.
