Comment
Comments: 
Capell cites Elkin, Berndt and Berndt (1951) as the source of information on Nambuguja, yet the publication only contains names vaguely similar. Upon closer inspection, the names listed there are more likely to be variants of other language names (e.g. Ambugula / Numbugala appear to be variants of Umbugarla N43). Tindale (1974) lists Nambuguja as a variant name for Ngomburr N40.1. Based on the information available, Nambuguja is unlikely to be a language name.
