All words in Ninde start with N

In An Idiot Abroad, Series 2 Episode 1, "Desert Island", the protagonist spends a night alone on a small island in Vanuatu, after meeting with the residents of a nearby island for some instruction and cultural background.

The locals speak Ninde.  It is implied that all Ninde words begin with n, and a joke is made that games of I-Spy must be boring.

He also visits other communities in Vanuatu, (the Yaohnanen, and a community that practices Land Diving), but nothing is said about language there.
