Kuman is a Non-Austronesian or Papuan language of the
Central Family of the East New Guinea Highlands Stock (Wurm
1978). There are over 66,000 speakers of Kuman, who live mainly
in the northern part of Simbu Province, Papua New Guinea.
Languages which belong to this family include Mid-Wahgi, Chuave,
Salt-Yui, Sinasina and Golin. Previous work on Kuman has been
carried out to my knowledge by Capell (1948-1949), Bergmann
(1953), Nilles (1969), Trefry (1967, 1969) Lynch (in press) and
