  • Name: Mudbura

Excerpt from change request document:

Dr. Bowern supports the judgement by Patrick McConvell that treats Karranga as a separate language (see http://wold.livingsources.org/language/182).

We believe that Dr. Bowern's research and expertise on languages of Australia, as well as the support of the sources listed below are sufficient to define this as a distinct language.
