Description:John Tining tells the story of the cannibilism of a thief. The thief kept coming to and from the southeast and stealing pigs. Finally the villagers of Lirri were fed up and killed him and his son and ate them. Linguistically this is in Ngeye dialect with lots of lexical differentiation. But also an interesting aspectual borrowing from Bislama – mas 'must'. File Description: This bundle contains audio, video and a PDF of the FLEX export. The PDF is glossed and translated into English and Bislama.
