There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
And here comes my only complaint - I would have preferred more phrases, and perhaps short dictionary listings for all the three languages. Space for that could have been found by omitting what seems a waste here to me - descriptions of two obscure pidgin languages of Australia, which are also included in LP's Astralian Phrasebook (where they logicaly belong) anyway!
Still, within the confines of its limited space, this little book is excellent.
If you are lucky enough to travel to these charming archipelagos, dont leave home without it!

It has a major lack: a mini-dictionary of common words. This would have made it much better.
There is a new edition now.
