Nume (also called Gog and Tarasag) is an Oceanic language spoken on Gaua island in Vanuatu. Its 700 speakers live on the northeast coast of Gaua.
Nume is a distinct language from its immediate southern neighbors, Mwerlap and Dorig.
The name Nume originates in the name of a village, now abandoned. Tarasag is currently the community's main village. The alternate name Gog refers to the broader area, and by extension, to the island.
Nume has 7 phonemic vowels, which are all short monophthongs.
The system of personal pronouns in Nume contrasts clusivity, and distinguishes four numbers (singular, dual, trial, plural).
Spatial reference in Nume is based on a system of geocentric (absolute) directionals, which is typical of Oceanic languages.
