Bura-Pabir (also known as Bura, Burra, Bourrah, Pabir, Babir, Babur, Barburr, Mya Bura, Kwojeffa, Huve, Huviya) is a Chadic language spoken in Nigeria. Dialects are Pela, Bura Pela, Hill Bura, Hyil Hawul, Bura Hyilhawul, and Plain Bura.
Bura has been reported to contrast a voiceless palatal lateral fricative,  (ʎ̥˔), which is quite rare. There are thus five laterals in Bura: [l ʎ ɬ ɮ ], though  can be analyzed as a palatalized fricative, /ɬʲ/. Apart from this, its inventory is much like the very complex system of Margi.
