I read in today's Fiji Times that in Fiji some of the dialects are now forgotten. That's a pity as it's lovely to hear the distinctive differences in the Fiji dialects. Of course the Labasa dialect is unique with its deletion of 'k' and 't' most of the time as well as extra words not used elsewhere. And 'our' family language is still used in Labasa, Mali, Wailevu and nearby. Bula sia!
