Apropos of this, I recently obtained a copy of "Tok Pisin Stret!
Wordlist & Spell Check for Papua New Guinea Pidgin" (published by
Kristen Pres in 1994) from John Evans, who is now manager of the UPNG
bookstore. The booklet is a TP to English glossary that includes
nearly all of Mihalic as well as numerous new entries that are
asterisked. More copies might be available.
Also most (all?) PNG departments that have a web presence can be found at:

>How right you are about donor-speak. Donor-speak is an interesting
>comment on the donors' understanding of the community they are
>trying to help.
>Re the name of government departments-there is a good list in the
>Stailbuk bilong Wantok Niuspepa put out in the 1980s. It would be
