Comment
Comments: 
Raijang may be the same as 'Räyu?' in Schebeck, which he tentatively describes as a Gumatj N141 group (2001:95). Oates and Oates (1970:224) list Raijang as a Wulamba (a name given to the cultural area of N.E. Arnhem Land, called Murngin by Warner) dialect only found in AIAS files, but in her later work Oates (1975:389) deletes it saying that nothing is known. For Yolngu languages see Yolngu Matha N230.
