|Title:||The Phonology of Anêm, a Non-Austronesian Language of West New Britain|
|Abstract:||<p>Based on four and a half months of original fieldwork in the village of Karai-ai, the thesis is the first description of the phonology of Anem, a language spoken by about 400 people in the Kaliai and Bariai census divisions of West New Britain, Papua New Guinea. Anem is the only non-Austronesian language in West New Britain and has been heavily influenced by contact with neighbouring Austronesians. The description contains some ethnographic material to account for the effects of intercultural contact on the phonology of Anem.</p>|
