    Po-ai (Fwâi) does not have a “moderately small” consonant inventory. According to Haudricourt (1982) (Dictionnaire thématique des langues de la region de Hienghène), Fwâi has 26 well-established phonemes (26 would be “moderately large”) and 10 additional phonemes found in loanwords (36 would be “large”).
