Comment
Comments: 
There appears to be no documentation available on this language. Tindale (1974) lists a word list compiled by Muirhead, 'Belyando River', in Curr (1887) under Wangan. However, Breen (forthcoming paper on Biri) identifies this as Yangga E52. Breen also reports that Holmer (1983:368) gives Wanggan as the Aboriginal name for Clermont, and as a result Breen suspects that Wangan may not be a language name.
