Comments: Boumaa dialect. Boumaa Fijian is spoken around 'Orovou on Taveuni, Fiji. All vowels may occur long. Long vowels and diphthongs attract stress; primary stress goes on the syllable containing the penultimate mora in Dixon's formulation. /k/ occurs in loans from Standard Fijian, Tongan, and English; /f/ in loans from English and Tongan.
