Thousand One Papua New Guinean Nights: Language Index


This is a language index for the book, One Thousand One Papua New Guinean Nights by Thomas H. Slone. Numbers refer to issue numbers of Wantok newspaper. Languages are the presumptive first language of the author, rather than the language from which the folk tale was translated from. All folk tales were written in Tok Pisin. “Culture group” is not generally well-defined in Papua New Guinea, so I have used language as a substitute.
