Sulka language

The Sulka language is a possible language isolate scattered across the eastern end of New Britain island, Papua New Guinea. There are about 3000 speakers.

Sulka is very poorly attested. There are a few hints that it might be related to Kol or Baining, but there is currently insufficient evidence to say.
