Proto-Oceanic for 'again' or 'also'?

Dear all, 

I've been trying to find out if there is any reconstruction for Proto-Oceanic 
(or maybe Proto-Southeast-Solomonic) for a form meaning 'again' or 'also', but 
so far haven't been successful. 

 
The reason why I am interested in this is that there are two lexemes with this 
meaning found in Gela and Bughotu (both Southeast Solomonic, spoken in the 
central Solomon Islands), ghua (following a verb or a noun/NP) and ghoi 
(positioned between a subject/TAM marker at the beginning of a verb complex and 
a verb). Is any evidence for either of these to be 'proper' Oceanic?

I'd be grateful for any information or references!

Thanks in advance,
Claudia Wegener
