Ahamb, also spelled Axamb or Akhamb is an Oceanic language spoken in South Malakula, Vanuatu. Ahamb has around 1000 speakers, most of whom reside on the small low-lying Ahamb Island and the nearby Malekula mainland. The language is endangered due to a number of factors,[2] including climate change and environmental factors.
