Language: Sungwadoga (Rata)

Source/Author:  Iveth Rodriguez and Tom Ennever 
Notes:  This list is collated from three speakers (Elton Boe (EB), Ella Roule (ER) and Dora Adin (DA) who all identify with 'lanwis Rata'. They are remarkably consistent across speakers and the few differences are likely due to imperfect elicitation and/or memory recall of older linguistic terms rather than dialectal differences.
