Language: Sye (Erromangan)

Source/Author:  Crowley, Terry. 2000. An Erromangan (Sye) dictiona 
Notes:  Erromango Island, Southern Vanuatu.

Verbs are entered in the dictionary in citation forms (usually n-initial; the nominalisation), but in this list they are listed in their root form. 
Problems:  Erromangan orthographic c = voiced velar fricative (gamma), but I can't locate the symbol in the character set.
