The branches of CE Oceanic
Dark red = Southeast Solomons
Blue = Southern Oceanic
Pink = Micronesian
Ocher = Fijian-Polynesian (not shown: Rapa Nui)
The black oval between red and blue is the Temotu languages.
Traditional classifications have posited a Remote Oceanic branch within this family, but this was abandoned in Lynch et al. (2002), as no defining features could be found for such a group of languages.
- Southeast Solomons
- Southern Oceanic linkage (languages of New Caledonia and Vanuatu, such as Paicî)
- Central Pacific (Polynesian and the indigenous Austronesian languages of Fiji)
