Varisi (or "Waresi") Language Word List
St Dominic's Priory, Camberwell, VIC, Australia
Supplied note: "I have
recently put on-line a Word List of the Varisi (or "Waresi") language,
spoken on part of Choiseul Island, Solomon Islands. [A 1998 estimate: 7,200 speakers (src: www.ethnologue.com/show_language.asp?code=VRS) - ed.]
The word list was compiled by a Catholic missionary, Fr Stephen Tarrant,
with local help, when on the island in the 1960s. I have posted it
on-line with his permission. You can find it at:
[the URL below].
These days Fr Tarrant lives in North Adelaide, South Australia. - mw."
