Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Hawu aka Havu language, historically Sawu and known to outsiders as Savu or Sabu, is the language of Savu Island in Indonesia and of Raijua Island off the western tip of Savu. Traditionally classified as a Sumba language in the Austronesian family, it may actually be a non-Austronesian language. Dhao, once considered a dialect, is not mutually intelligible with Hawu. Seba dialect is dominant, covering most of Savu Island and the main city of Seba. Timu is spoken on the eastern, Mesara on the western, and Liae on the southern tip of the island. Raijua is spoken on the island of the same name just off-shore to the west.show more
