Abstract: Apolonia Tamata is Lecturer in Linguistics in the Pacific Languages Unit – a section of the Department located in Port Vila, Vanuatu. She is currently working towards her PhD at USP’s Laucala Bay campus in Suva. She has published a number of articles on Fijian and has interests in phonology, syntax, and orature. In The story of the Fijian story-teller, she tells a story of her own on an often overlooked genre of anecdotes which she calls ‘snippets’.
