With perhaps a query or two about some of its definitions.
e.g. for kumu it gives
New Guinea Pidgin English
green leafed vegetable food,
potato? wild sweet potato?
I haven't heard/seen those translations before.
and why the distinction betwen NG Pidgin English and Tok Pisin?- presumably
its drawing on two (?online) sources.
And its pretty non-specific on some other food names.
e.g. for marita it gives
New Guinea Pidgin
neither of which is from Mihalic(1971 edition, marita not in 1957 edition),
or Murphy(1966 edition). Both of which give more specific information.
