Language: Ham

Source/Author:  Lincoln (n.d.) 
Notes:  Lincoln, Piet. (n.d.) Rai Coast Survey. 
Problems: 
I found the language difficult to transcribe. Because the language is quite
different from other Rai Coast languages and because there are more
morphophonemic distortions of morphemes, it was not easy to discover
inconsistencies and misunderstandings while I was still in the village and
able to ask for clarification.
