Anunim ilulu natilonga

Eko lekua nangonga popue

Munim siusiu pa isolia

Eko ikoura me na Kim iom!

Maleu

Maleu (idne) that some consider distinct from the neighboring kilenge is an Austronesian ngero-vitiaz language from the far west of the province of New Britain (for others kilenge is a dialect of maleu). About 5,500 people speak male'u, a Papuan language related to the Lolo people of Cape Gloucester.

Lolo and Kilenge

If the Lolo and Kilenge people speak languages ​​close to 95% this is due to their geographical proximity and to the numerous exchanges which unite them ... first commercial, then cultural, and finally by the marriages. In smaller number, thef Kilenges originated in the Siassi Islands, live along a narrow strip of coastal strip at the northwestern tip of the island of New Britain. As for them, the Lolo are more in the bush inland of this same geographical area.
