A bibliography of Melanesian Pidgin English dictionaries, phrase books and study guides


Below is an annotated bibliography of Melanesian Pidgin English dictionaries, phrase books, and study guides. If you know of others please let me know. I have not included the few dictionaries that are from another Papua New Guinean language to Tok Pisin.

An asterisk (*) following a reference indicates that I have not seen it myself.

See also the Amazon Melanesian Pidgin Store.
