Lamaholot, also known as Solor or Solorese, is a Central Malayo-Polynesian dialect cluster of Flores, Indonesia. The varieties may not be all mutually intelligble; Keraf (1978) reports that there are 18 languages under the name.[3] The language shows evidence of a Papuan (non-Austronesian) substratum.
