Abstract

Raga, phonemically /raxa/, is spoken by about 4000 people on the northernmost third of Pentecost, as well as by significant numbers of people living fairly permanently in the towns of Vila and Santo. The neighbouring languages on Pentecost to the south of Raga have not been well-described, though all clearly belong to the North Central Vanuatu subgroup. The boundary between the Northern and Central Vanuatu subgroups lies just to the south of Raga.
