This thesis presents a detailed analysis of the sound correspondences of the Lusi and Bariai languages of West New Britain, and their development from Proto-Oceanic, and examines subgrouping classifications suggested by Friederici (1912, 1913), Chowning (1969, 1976), and Lincoln (1977, 1978). Verification and correction of certain data found in Friederici (1912) on the Bariai language, and in Counts (1969) on the Lusi language are also provided.
