Title: *Leo Tuai:
Subtitle: A comparative lexical study of North and Central Vanuatu languages
Written By: Ross Clark
Series Title: Pacific Linguistics
Description:

More than eighty Oceanic languages are spoken in the northern and central
island of Vanuatu. This book provides the first detailed internal
comparison of these languages. Several hundred cognate sets and
reconstructed proto forms provide a basis for an account of the
phonological history of fifteen selected languages. An argument is made for
a unified origin of these languages from an ancestor not far removed from
Proto Oceanic.
