Language: Luqa

Source/Author:  Mary Raymond 
Notes:  Kubokota and Luqa are very closely related although there are some grammatical differences and, I feel, more lexical differences than this word list suggests (Kubokota has a lot of borrowings from Bilua, a neighbouring Papuan language).

Orthography: q = voiced velar stop, v = voiced bilabial fricative, ng = velar nasal, ny = palatal nasal, g = voiced velar fricative, j = voiced palatal affricate. All voiced stops and affricates are prenasalized.
