Language: Buya


This entry has been retired and is featured here only for bookkeeping purposes. Either the entry has been replaced with one or more more accurate entries or it has been retired because it was based on a misunderstanding to begin with.

E16/E17 lists Buya [byy] as an Unclassified Southern Bantoid language of the DRC without a location. This must emanate from William E. Welmers 1971: 788-789 since that is the only source mentioning such a language with exactly that much (lack of) information. In all likelihood, Buya [byy] is a rendering of a DRC language already counted in another E16/E17 entry, presumbly Buyu [byi]. See also: Buyu [byi].
