akj – Aka-Jeru
gac – Great Andamanese creole
The Jeru language, Aka-Jeru (also known as Yerawa, not to be confused with Järawa), is a Great Andamanese language, of the Northern group. Whether Jeru is extinct is disputed. The Andaman website reports 7 speakers; at issue is whether the surviving Great Andamanese language is Jeru, Pucikwar, or a creole based on several languages, of which Jeru is a primary component. Jeru was spoken in the interior and south coast of North Andaman and on Sound Island.
