Maramba [myd] is listed in E16/E17/E18/E19 as a separate entry presumably following Stephen Wurm 1982 where it first occurs as a separate language. Earlier surveys have Maramba as an Angoram [aog] speaking village ( Laycock, Donald C. 1973 ). The reason Maramba appeared as a separate language in Stephen Wurm 1982 is as follows. William Foley was told by Angoram speakers in 1977 that the language of Maramba was different from their own language and reported this to Donald Laycock who, in turn, passed it on to Stephen Wurm. On later trips by William Foley, other Angoram speakers have claimed that the Maramba village does speak their language. Unfortunately no researcher has studied the language(s?) at Maramba so we do not know what the situation actually is, but so far, there is no insufficient information to assert that there is a separate language at Maramba. See also: Angoram [aog].
