Comment
Comments: 
The status of Dungibara is not clear. Steele (1984:245) treats it as the name of one of peoples whose language is Waka E28, and Kite and Wurm list Duungibara (E87) as a group name (2004:4). According to Tindale Dungibara (Doongibara, Doongiburra) is the name of a group who speak Dalla E25; each group speaks a slightly different dialect (1974:166).
