Comment
Comments: 

The online Yolngu Matha dictionary indicates that Bararrpararr is a clan-nation who speak nhaŋu'mirri N211.

Bararrpararr (N228) is a Yolngu clan affiliated with Nhungu N211, Gutji sub-group and Dhuwa moiety (Schebeck, 2001:15).

Note that Oates and Oates (1975:319) and Oates (1970:217) equate Bararrpararr with Bural Bural N114, leading to the previous classification with the same code. For Yolngu language groups see Yolngu Matha N230.
