Yapese Language Texts

Yap Department of Education

School texts produced by the Yap Dept. of Education 1976-84

Appx. 250 Yapese DoE texts produced by a variety of teachers working in the Yap Department of Education during those years, and which I have edited into a standardised orthography (never officially adopted).
