Nen is a Papuan language of the Yam family (aka Morehead-Maro family), found in the southern part of New Guinea (Evans et al. forthcoming). Nen counts around 400 speakers, most living in the village of Bimadbn. Most speakers are accomplished polyglots, speaking neighbouring languages both related (Nmbo) and unrelated (Idi), and middle-aged people speak excellent English, whereas among younger people Nen and other languages are dominant.
