Julien Meyer (julmeyer.lab at gmail.com) is doing research on whistled forms of
languages. Although he is currently working in the Amazon (he has a post doc
with the Museu Paranse Emilio Goeldi, Brasil, and has formerly worked on a
project funded by SOAS), he is interested in the subject worldwide, and has
written to me about whistled languages in Papua New Guinea. For PNG, there
are scattered references to whistled languages in parts of the Sepik
(particularly Torricelli) and the Highlands, but except for a few sources,
my information is very limited.
If you have any knowledge about whistled languages in PNG or other parts of
the Pacific, please communicate directly with Julien.
Thanks for your help,
