Nguna Voices: Text and Culture from Central Vanuatu
This book is unique in several respects: it is the first monograph to be written concerning the Pacific culture of Vanuatu; it includes thirty-three oral texts in their original language as well as in English translation; it contains an exhaustive glossary of the foreign vocabulary; and it provides information of a sort rarely seen in textual collections, concerning the methodology and problems involved in textual transcription, translation and presentation. These features make it of considerable value to oceanic specialists as well as to general linguists, folklorists and ethnographers.
