"This paper offers sketches of segment inventories, pronominal and noun class systems, and verb stem alternations of six of the region’s seven lan- guages, in addition to giving relevant background information and an updated map of the area. Received classifications of the region’s languages are assessed in light of the newly collected data, and a concrete proposal is made to reclassify the group of languages presently known as Western Beboid into a referential grouping which we term the Yemne-Kimbi group."
