Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ambelau is an Austronesian language; as of 1989, it was spoken by about 5,700 Ambelau people, of whom more than 5,000 lived on the Indonesian island Ambelau and most others in the village Wae Tawa of the nearby island Buru. The language belongs to the Central Maluku branch of Malayo-Polynesian languages; there is no consensus in literature on its attribution to a distinct sub-branch, e.g. Sula-Buru languages. Although Ambelau island is only 20 km away from the much larger Buru island, the Ambelau language is rather different from all languages and dialects of Buru. Its closest analogue is the southern dialect of Buru language, Masarete.show more
