Comment
Language comment
Schebeck (2001:88) treats his Burratha as an equivalent of Burarra (N135) and identifies it as a 'warname' of the Warramiri N131. However, Keen (1978) treats it as a separate clan name whose language is Djangu N202. Bowern and James list the linguistic affiliation of Walamangu N79 and Bindararr N213 (two Yolngu clans) with Burarra (N135) / Yan-nhangu N72 (2010:363). See also Madarrpa N111. Oates (1975:18) equates Burera N82 with Burarra (N135), and she subsumes Bureda (N135) under Burera N82. They are however separate. For Yolngu languages see Yolngu Matha N230.
