Pijin [pis] as L2

LLS, Mon, 2014-04-28 11:12
Regarding: 
Language Use
ISO 639-3: 
mlu
I notice that [eng] is listed as an L2 for To'abaita, but not Pijin [pis]. This must be an oversight as Pijin is widely spoken in the To'abaita area as an L2, or at least it was when I lived there 30 years ago. Further, I notice on the Pijin page, that only 12 languages of the SI are listed as using [pis] as an L2, but I know the number is much higher than 12.
Editorial Action
We will list Pijin [pis] as an L2 for To'abaita [mlu]. We will contact a knowledgeable person in the Solomon Islands for feedback on other SI languages that have Pisin as L2.
