Description:1 page typed manuscript. -- (For Appendix). Table, possibly attributable to the missionary Corlette. Some consonant changes in New Hebrides languages, showing how words apparently different are related, or radically the same. 1 large sheet.; Date of recording unknown. The typed manuscript is general and inclusive of all languages across Vanuatu. Therefore the multiple languages represent over a hundred indigenous languages in Vanuatu. From Ethnologue - the number of individual languages listed for Vanuatu is 113. Of these, 111 are living and 2 are extinct. Of the living languages, 109 are indigenous and 2 are non-indigenous. Furthermore, 5 are institutional, 21 are developing, 30 are vigorous, 44 are in trouble, and 11 are dying. From Wikipedia - Many of the languages are named after the island they are spoken on, though some of the larger islands have several different languages and linguistically diverse. Some language names refer to networks of dialects rather than unified languages. The Multiple languages (mul) in this instance represents all languages in Vanuatu. A language identified is Baki (bki) which is spoken on Epi Island in Shefa Province. (Steven Gagau, April 2018). Language as given: New Hebrides languages
