Bola [bnp] is an Oceanic language spoken by some 14,000 people in the
Willaumez Peninsula, West New Britain, Papua New Guinea. Bola is a
conservative Western Oceanic language with many typical Oceanic features,
including a complex pronominal system, alienable and inalienable possessive
marking, extensive preverbal TAM marking, serial verb constructions, and few
conjunctions. Less typical are the presence of an agentless passive (marked
by ni), bimorphemic negation, and the widespread use of apposition.


The publication is available at
[The format is for A5 print publication.]
