Hi.  I have less objection to the longer comments (although some of the information is repetitive), but do object to only one dialect name's being included in the description for the first two variants.  Doug's revisions include the following changes:


> OLD:
> Description: Aluku variant of the Busi Nenge Tongo Creole


> NEW:
> Description: Aluku dialect
> Description: Boni dialect

> . . .


> OLD:
> Description: Ndyuka variant of the Busi Nenge Tongo 

> Creole

> NEW:
> Description: Ndyuka dialect
> Description: Aukan dialect

I think the above changes are absolutely essential!
