Abstract

The Tamabo [tamambo] language of Malo island, south of Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu, is spoken by approximately 2000 people, mostly from the western half of the island, and by speakers resident in Santo and Vila. It belongs to the Northern Vanuatu linkage and appears similar to languages of South Santo, as described by Codrington (1885) and Ray (1926).
