* There are an estimated 7,000+ languages [4] spoken or signed in the
world. Over 800 of them are found in Papua New Guinea, [5] making it the
most linguistically diverse place on earth. The most widely used language
of PNG is Tok Pisin, [6] which is a creole language, [7] which is a
language derived from a mixture of other languages. Tok Pisin takes much of
its vocabulary from English, but also from German, Malay, Portuguese and
local Austronesian languages.
