Proto-Dialect chainsAm I missing something?

Doesn't your statement

"There was probably a Southern Oceanic linkage, an dialect-chain ancestral to the languages of Vanuatu and New Caledonia. "

imply that there was a slightly older language that was the source of the dialect-chain?    Isn't that what you are reconstructing?

more power to ya!
