Avok, a Eastern Malakula linkage language of the offshore island of Avok, is missing from E16/E17/E18/E19 ( Charpentier, Jean-Michel 1982 , Darrell T. Tryon 1976 ). It is possibly missing since Darrell T. Tryon 1976 treat it as a dialect of Axamb [ahb]. But lexicostatistical similarity between varieties of the two are never above 75% and go down as low as 60%, leaving little room for intelligibility between the endpoints John Lynch and Terry Crowley 2001: 75 . See also: Axamb [ahb].
