Comment
Comments: 
There are differing reports on this name. Clark (2005:18) treats Minjambuta as a possible dialect of Waywurru / Pallanganmiddang S89, though he subsequently says it is probably a variant of Minubuddong and, as such, possibly a Wiradjuri exonym for Pallanganmiddang S89 (Clark 2011:9). Gardner (1997:9) says it is the name of a group, also known as the Mogullumbitch or Mokeallumbeets, who spoke the same language as the Gundungerre S43. Mathews (1909:278, in Blake and Reid 2002:179) treat it as a dialect of Dhudhuroa S44.
