E16/E17/E18/E19 lists two languages Ngombe [nmj] (in Central African Republic) and Bangandu [bgf] (in Cameroon and Congo-Brazzaville). There exist two such populations with those names and locations. They were separated approximately fifty years before the arrival of Europeans and are mutually aware of each other ( Moñino, Yves 1995 :16 ). They speak the same language, as comparison with actual data confirms ( Moñino, Yves 1988 , Adelphe Dogué Syssa and Ange Marius Pagbanda 2013 ). The classification of Ngombe [nmj] (but not location or any other information in the entry) in the Baka-Gundi group suggests that there is confusion with the clan of Pygmies called Bangombe (where Ba- is arguably a prefix) encounted in Congo-Brazzaville ( Pepper, Herbert 1955 , Verhille, Emile 1948, 1948, 1948, 1949 , Klieman, Kairn A. 1997 :290 , Sato, Hiroaki 1992 , Boyeldieu, Pascal and Cloarec-Heiss, France 1986 , Ballif, Noël 1992 :81-82 ). But the language of the Bangombe clan ( Pepper, Herbert 1955 , Verhille, Emile 1948, 1948, 1948, 1949 , Boyeldieu, Pascal and Cloarec-Heiss, France 1986 , Ballif, Noël 1992 :212 ) as far as it is documented, is indistinguishable from that of the vocabularies in Ouzilleau, F. 1911 which represent the Gundi [gdi] entry, cf. Klieman, Kairn A. 1997 :277 . Thus, even if Ngombe [nmj] were to refer to the Bangombe clan of Pygmies, the entry is spurious as a separate language. See also: Gundi [gdi], Ngombe-Bangandu [bgf].
