Comment:
Bisorio (10628-bic) = Endangered (20 percent certain, based on the evidence available)

Bikaru [bic] is listed in E16/E17/E18/E19 as a separate Sepik Hill language deriving from the Bikaru vocabulary collected by Bragge ( Conrad, Robert J. and Ronald K. Lewis 1988 , Laycock, Donald C. no date ) which shows a mix of Bisorio [blr] and Sanio [sny] resemblant words. Other attestations of Bikaru/Pikaru simply reflect a variety of Bisorio [bir] ( Conrad, Robert J. and Ronald K. Lewis 1988 ). Given that Bragge's vocabulary was collected monolingually on a survey, quite likely it reflects a confused elicitation session rather than a separate language. See also: Saniyo-Hiyewe [sny].
