Abstract / Summary
Five printed pages with badly torn edges contain a brief glossary of the dialect spoken in the area of Awaiama, or Chad's Bay, on the far eastern end of Papua-New Guinea, originally published in the Annual Report on British New Guinea, 1889-1890. The document includes an abridged version of the Royal Geographic Society's 'System of Orthography for Native Names of Places,' adopted around 1885. Written in pencil in the upper right corner of the first page are the notes: Melan (presumable short for Melanesia); Extreme E.; Chad; and cf. Weda (another dialect).
