Atauran (adb-adb) = 6a* (Vigorous).

Adabe [adb], an alleged Papuan language of Atauro island, does not exist and it has been explained how it was mistakenly thought to exist ( Hull, Geoffrey 1998: 3-4 ) viz. a misreading of an ambiguous statement by a missionary that made it into Stephen Wurm and Shirô Hattori 1981 from where the E16/E17/E18/E19/E20/E21/E22/E23/E24/E25/E26 entry derives from ( Hull, Geoffrey 2004: 41 ).
