Description

This series contains material from Maramasike Island (in South Malaita), concentrating on the Saa language as well as other local languages. It includes (at times incomplete) comparative vocabulary lists (Saa-English) which were probably compiled by Capell, a typed paper on the difference between Uki, Niawa, and Saa (the three local languages), a map showing the population distribution on Maramasike Island, and handwritten notes on the grammar of Saa and other local languages.

South Malaita Island, also known as Small Malaita and Maramasike, is at the southern tip of the main Island of Malaita in the Solomon Islands. During the colonial days,the island was divided by the colonial government and missionary establishments, into the Asimeuri, Asimae, and Raroisu'u districts.
