    Abstract

    Kaluli is one of four dialects of Bosavi, a non-Austronesian verb-final ergative language. Most speakers are monolingual. While Tok Pisin (Neo Melanesian), is known by some younger men, it is almost never heard in daily discourse. Recently introduced literacy programs have affected few people.
