Source/Author:  Crowley 
Notes:  Also Known As Maragus

Crowley, T. (2006). Tape: a declining language of Malakula (Vanuatu). Edited by John Lynch. Pacific Linguistics. Research School of Pacific and Asian Studies. The Australian National University.

kh = velar fricative, ng = velar nasal, ë = schwa. 
Problems:  Andreea: replaced /kh/ with velar fricative:
-- voiced velar fricative intervocalically, word initially
-- voiceless velar fricative word finally, or adjacent to unvoiced consonants
(cf. Malcolm Ross)

Also replaced all ë with ə.
