This Tamambo dictionary is a work in progess. It is presented here in the knowledge that many corrections and additions need to be made. It can be cited as Dorothy Jauncey (2011) Dictionary of Tamambo, Malo. (http://paradisec.org.au/vandicts/Tamambolexicon/index-english/main.htm) This work results from the collaborative effort of speakers of Tamambo, in the Avunatari area of west Malo and in Port Vila, and Dorothy Jauncey, who has written a grammar of the language. Acknowledgement is made here of Vomaranda Joy Botleng and Nellie Caleb who checked meanings of many words. Names of many yam, banana, and breadfruit cultivars are from Matthew Allen. Words from the ‘East’ dialect in the south and east of Malo island were collected from speakers in the Ataripoi area of the island, and in villages inland by Dorothy Jauncey with assistance from Jif Vira Joseph. The few ‘East’ words that are listed here are not given full entries, but are cross-referenced to the main Tamambo entry with the same meaning.
