Comment
Comments: 
Previously Burabura was treated as an alternative name for Barababaraba D5 in AUSTLANG. Mathews (MS 299) distinguishes between Burabura and Burraba Burraba D5, presenting several pages of language data for each. Hercus (1966:335) also refers to the 'two variant forms of Berebabereba D5' mentioned by Mathews. Capell (1963) notes that the two appear to be slightly different but that Tindale conflates them. It appears that most sources have done the same as Tindale. Documentation for Barababaraba D5 may be relevant.
