This work contains a Grammar and complete Dictionary of the language of Efate, New Hebrides, which is a typical specimen of the Oceanic languages which are spoken by fifty millions, or one-thirtieth, of the human race in islands of the Indian and Pacific Oceana, extending over two hundred degrees of longitude.

It contains also a Comparative Grammar, and, to a sufficient extent, a, Comparative Vocabulary of these languages, together with the evidence of their Arabian origin; thus adding these fifty millions to those previously known as Semitic speakers, as, one hundred years ago, the many millions in India were, by similar evidence, added to those previously known as Aryan (European) speakers.

It is a unique unveiling of the linguistic, mental, religious and moral life, social organization, and pre-historic antecedents of the existing Oceanic 'savages', or 'primitive' man.

To those engaged in the study of man, Anthropologists and Ethnologists, more especially to students of Linguistic science, Orientalists, aud Semitic scholars, the work should prove a welcome, and even, it may be said, an indispensable aid.
