Mangareva

Mangareva is a Polynesian language spoken in the islands of Gambier and Mangareva of French Polynesia. According to the 2011 census, there are about 600 speakers of Mangareva. It is closely related to Tahitian, Rarotongan, Tuamotuan and Marquesan.

Mangareva was first written by French missionaries in the late 19th century. A number of dictionaries of Mangareva were published in the 19th century, and a grammar of Mangareva was published in French in France in 1908. Other works on the language have been published since then.
