Kalaamaya, also spelled Karlamay, is a Pama–Nyungan language of Western Australia. It is poorly attested, but appears to have been a close relative of the Nyungar languages.
A variety called Nyaki Nyaki (Njakinjaki) has been variously said to be a dialect of Nyungar or of Kalaamaya. Natingero has also been listed as a dialect, but it is only 40% lexically similar.
