Language: Lemerig

Source/Author:  Alexandre François 
Notes:  This language is spoken on Vanua Lava (Vanuatu, Banks) and has only two speakers left.

New iso code = lrz; but not yet in Ethnologue.

The data here are based on my field notes with one of these speakers.

Transcriptions are in IPA. Possessed (inalienable) nouns are here given in 3sg form (-n suffix)
As usual, I provide you with the etymology when I know it for sure.
This etymology is sometimes at POc level, sometimes at a higher or lower level in the AN tree.
When it is a local etymology (north Vanuatu) I indicate this with 2 stars.
