Takia Language

Takia is an Austronesian language spoken on Karkar Island, Bagabag Island, and coastal villages Megiar and Serang, Madang Province, Papua New Guinea. It has been syntactically restructured by Waskia, a Papuan language spoken on the island.

Children are discouraged from using Takia, and it is being supplanted by Tok Pisin and English.
