Musom (2276-msu) = Endangered (60 percent certain, based on the evidence available) (There is much intermarriage of Musom speakers with speakers of other languages, strong presence of Tok Pisin, the national language of Papua New Guinea, and of Yabim, the former Lutheran church lingua franca (still used by persons over forty years of age), the nearness of Lae and the influence of city life, education of children in English, long absences of adult males for work – all factors detrimental to the language.)
