Language: Vaeakau-Taumako

Source/Author:  Even Hovdhaugen (fieldwork) 
Notes:  Vaeakau-Taumako is a Polynesian language in the Solomons. It has until now in the literature been called Pileni or Taumako. But the speakers are not happy with a name that just mentions one island or one dialect. They have no native word for their language.
