Language: Nenaya

Source/Author:  Lincoln (n.d.) 
Notes:  Lincoln, Piet. (n.d.) Rai Coast Survey. 
Problems: 
The Nenaya list is the most error-prone:

"the words were mostly approximately correct but were lacking some phonetic
details, in particular sequences like (a?a] had been reduced to [a].
Unfortunately, before I completed checking the data, I was reminded that
time and tide wait for no man, and I was obliged to board the canoe for
Roinji rather than abuse the generosity of my hosts."
