Subject: Expert on Asmat

I'm doing some research about the Asmat language of South West Papua
New Guinea (Irian Jaya). I read the grammar of the Flamingo Bay
dialect (Voorhoeve, Clemens Lambertus. 1965) so this is primarily the
dialect I am interested in. Any pointers/suggestions would be greatly

Thank you very very much in advance!

Best wishes,
