    Bislama Dictionary            

Bislama is a creole language, one of the official languages of Vanuatu. It is the first language of many of the "Urban ni-Vanuatu" (those who live in Port Vila and Luganville), and the second language of much of the rest of the country's residents. "Yumi, Yumi, Yumi", the Vanuatu national anthem, is in Bislama.

More than 95% of Bislama words are of English origin; the remainder combines a few dozen words from French, as well as some vocabulary inherited from various languages of Vanuatu, essentially limited to flora and fauna terminology. While the influence of these vernacular languages is low on the vocabulary side, it is very high in the morphosyntax. Bislama can be basically described as a language with an English vocabulary and an Oceanic grammar.

[South Efate - English dictionary]

The South Efate language is a Nuclear Southern Oceanic language of the Malayo-Polynesian language family, spoken on the island of Efate in central Vanuatu. As of 2005, there are approximately 6,000 speakers who live in coastal villages from Pango to Eton. The language's grammar has been described by Nick Thieberger, who is working on a book of stories and dictionary of the language. The field recordings have been archived with Paradisec.

South Efate is closely related to Nguna and to Lelepa. A 2008 analysis of the Austronesian Basic Vocabulary Database (based purely on a small set of vocabulary items) places it in an Efate group that also includes North Efate. Based on certain shared features with southern Vanuatu languages (including echo-subject marking and a free form and preposed 1st singular possessive form), Lynch (2001) suggests it could form part of a southern Vanuatu subgroup which includes New Caledonia.

Vurës is the dominant indigenous language of Vanua Lava, spoken in a number of villages in the southwest of the island. Vanua Lava is called Vōnō Lav in Vurës, meaning ‘big island’, as it is the largest island of the Banks group. Today there are approximately 1,000-1,200 speakers of the language. More than 600 of these speakers live in the village of Vētuboso in the Vurës Bay area, with communities of about 200 and 100 speakers in the villages of Wasag and Kērēbētia respectively, and smaller communities in the surrounding area.
