Language: Paicî

Source/Author:  Rivierre, 1983 
Notes:  Rivierre, Jean-Claude. 1983. Dictionnaire Paici-Français. Paris:SELAF.

This language has tones which I've identified as: ˥ 'high', ˧ 'mid', ˩ 'low'.

Rivierre wrote double V's for long vowels. I have written them as V:, otherwise, his transcription is represented here.
