Waropen is not spoken in Yapen

Location
ISO 639-3: 
wrp

Waropen is not spoken in Yapen. There are no sources that state that Waropen was or is spoken in Yapen. During my own research I never encountered Waropen speakers in Yapen, except some Serui residents. As almost every Yapen language is represented in Serui by some or more speakers, it would be inappropriate to state that Waropen is spoken in Yapen. Almost all speakers in Serui use Malay

This correction will be made in the 18th edition database for Warapu [wrp] in Papua, Indonesia
