This is a dialect of Kurnai S68 (Clark, 2005) and the Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages).
Gardner (1996:5) and Hercus (1969), however, treat it as the name of a group whose language is Kurnai S68.
Howitt (1996 1904:73) reports that Brabralung S45 is the name of a clan whose language is called Muk-Thang S45, being one of three dialects spoken by the Kurnai S68 people.
Walsh (1981) follows this analysis, but uses Muk-thang S68 for the cover term as well as one of the dialects, and with the addition of Bidhawal S49 as a fourth dialect (1981).
Of Bidawal S49, Howitt comments that it is a mixture of Kurnai (S68), Ngarigo S46 and 'Murring' (i.e. a Yuin language) (1996 :79-81).
Mitchell, Nicholson, and Tambo rivers; south to about Bairnsdale and Bruthen (Tindale 1974). (The southern part of this is assigned to Krauatungulung on Clark's map.)
