Language: Pulau (Arguni)

Source/Author:  Blust, from Grace Notebooks 
Notes:  "In conclusion, then, the language of Arguni Island may be a divergent member of the North Bomberai group, or its similarity to these languages may be a product of borrowing as a result of prolonged contact between small language communities." (Blust, 1993, p.274)
