Dictionary of Netwar (Lenakel language)
- In this category:
- Language posters
This is the first ever extensive dictionary of Netwar language (western Tanna, Republic of Vanuatu) published online. It is the fruit of several years of my work among the inhabitants of the island of Tanna. It contains translations of local expressions, pronunciation recordings and photographic documentation. Its purpose is to help in the preservation of the language and in passing it to the young generation.

- n yam (Dioscorea sp.), species.
- n vine, leaves used to cover the circumcision wound. The shape of the leaves looks similar to a kind of yam that bears the same name. The leaves of this vine are placed on the 'kawar' of yams to obtain good crop.
