Lemerig

Glottocode : leme1238   ISO 639-3 : lrz

Lemerig is a moribund Oceanic language spoken by only 2 or 3 people, on the island of Vanua Lava (Banks Islands), in northern Vanuatu.

Its phylogenetic affiliation is the same as the other 138 languages spoken in Vanuatu: it is an Oceanic language – and thus a member of the vast Austronesian family that covers most islands in the Pacific. Within the northern Vanuatu “linkage”, Lemerig forms a linguistic transition between Vera’a on the one hand, and Mwotlap on the other (Kalyan & François 2018).
