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 (ancient term) net, traditional, made of aerial root of banyan 'nasas'. It has a form of a basket with two long poles attached to it, using which the net is held in place through which fishes often swim.
- n leg decoration, similar to 'kaukasé', but worn around legs during the dances of 'nekowiar' and during the 'kamir iataw kaur' ceremony. Often made of leaves of 'nalé'.
