Languages of Southwest Ambrym

The goal of the project is to describe the languages of Southwest Ambrym, an island of the state of Vanuatu in the South Pacific, and document their uses in various cultural contexts. There are at least three languages with several dialects belonging to the Austronesian family, which are endangered due to language contact and environmental dangers.
