Source/Author:  Leenhardt (1946) 
Notes:  Leenhardt, Maurice. 1946. Langues et dialectes de l'Austro-Mèlanèsie 
Problems:  Transcription converteⁿd to IPA based on author's phonetic descriptions.

Except: some vowels;
[r̃] = "dental nasalised liquid"; and
[’], which I assume to be glottal stop but the author does not explicitly discuss.
