Oroha is a Southeast Solomonic language in the Oceanic family, spoken in a village apparently on or near Malaita Island, seen in the center of this map (also in the public domain):

One of the mother tongue speakers, now residing in Finland has put out a call, requesting assistance in revitalizing Oroha. The request can be found on the Linguist List.

    Hi all,

    I’ve started a grammar and dictionary project with George (the native speaker who posted the message about Oroha on the Linguist List). Anyone else who might be interested in helping out, please feel free to drop me a line!

    Hi Jordan and George,

    This is a great project! I am free and more willing to help out with you guys with this project since I am also one of those native speakers of this nearly extinct language.
