Mistake

Regarding: 
Alternate Names
ISO 639-3: 
khz

I would like to take backI I had commented, I checked again and found out that I was wrong, the babaga is a dialect group that covers a number of villages(inland) while "papaka" is a coastal village different from the babaga group but share similar names, so "Babaga" is correct. I apologise for my error of judgement. Thank you

Editorial Action

We have corrected the previous dialect name that was proposed (from Papaka to Babaga) for Keapara [khz] in Papua New Guinea.

I would like to make correction regarding the names : Babaga is incorrect, it should be Papaka, the villagers(of Papaka) themselves call their village and dialect "Papaka", not babaka or babaga. there is no letter b sound in papaka dialect, only P. the name "kerepunu" is the old name of the village(not language) of keapara, I do not think that the name kerepunu should be an alternative name, it should be listed in the dialect list.

Editorial Action

We will make the proposed corrections in the Keapara [khz] entry for the next edition of the Ethnologue.
