Comment
Comments: 
Bundjuwanga appears to be a dialect of Nyamal A58 or another name for Nyamal. Oates (1975:74) says that it was studied and termed by von Brandenstein as 'heavy' Njamal A58. No item with the name Bundjuwanga appears in MURA but it is likely that Bundjuwanga data is included in items described as being on Nyamal. Documentation for Nyamal A58 may be relevant.
