Kuot (Panaris)

Kuot is a language isolate spoken by about 2,400 people (in 2002) in New Ireland in Papua New Guinea, mainly on the northwest coast of the island. The language is also known as Panaras and Panaris. The name Kuot was first used by Edgar Walden in 1911.

Kuot is currently classified as an endangered language. Few children are growing up as native speakers of Kuot, but are using the Tok Pisin language instead.
