  • Verb-Adjacent Clitic Climbing and Restructuring in Isbukun Bunun
    • Abstract: To my knowledge, Starosta (1988/2009) is the first study that proposes the "adverb-as-main-verb" hypothesis in Formosan languages. He claims that words translating as adverbs in English are grammatically main verbs in many Austronesian languages of Taiwan. Taking this assertion as a starting point, it would be interesting to determine, when an adverb and a verb cooccur in a clause, which acts as the main predicate.2This study follows Starosta's proposal and reexamines its prediction. The language under discussion is Isbukun Bunun, an Austronesian language spoken in central and southern Taiwan.3Adverbials in Bunun share verbal properties: (i) they carry voice morphology; (ii) they attract clitic pronouns; and (iii) ...

  • Event Integration and Argument Realization in Nonconcordant Verb
           Serialization in Tsou
    • Abstract: A serial verb construction (henceforth SVC) is a multi-predicational yet monoclausal structure often characterized as the expression of a single event (Durie 1997:291; Bril 2004:2; Aikhenvald 2006:1; Bisang 2009:796, for instance). Nevertheless, precisely what falls under the characterization of a single event remains an area of open debate. Two recent treatments have advocated dissociating single eventhood from the definitions of SVCs. Haspelmath (2016:306) warns of the use of single events as a criterion, considering the lack of an objective, unambiguous way to contrast a single event in opposition to multiple events. Baker and Harvey (2010:44) explore the combinatorial possibilities of verbs and state that ... Read More

  • A First Reconstruction of Vowels in Proto-Timor-Alor-Pantar
    • Abstract: The presence of Papuan (that is, non-Austronesian) languages in Eastern Indonesia has been recognized at least since de Jong's (1937) descriptive and ethnographic work on Oirata (Kisar island, Indonesia); however, very little comparative research on these languages had been done until quite recently. Some early lexicostatistical work was undertaken by Stokhof (1975), though no detailed applications of the comparative method to these languages were published until 2012. That year saw the publication of two groundbreaking papers: Holton et al. (2012) reconstructed the consonants of a family they called Proto-Alor-Pantar (PAP), based on twelve of the Papuan languages spoken on or near those two Indonesian islands ... Read More

  • Spatial Deixis, Textual Cohesion, and Functional Differentiation in
           Takivatan Bunun
    • Abstract: Takivatan is one of five dialects of Bunun (ISO 639-3: bnn), an Austronesian language of Taiwan. It is mainly spoken in two settlements on the east coast of Taiwan and in some isolated pockets deep in the central mountain range. Like its sister dialects, it has a Philippine-type voice system and a large system of affixes, mainly verbal.2 One of its interesting characteristics is that it has various paradigms of spatial deictic expressions that have a range of deictic and nondeictic uses (De Busser 2009:415–80). Demonstratives all distinguish between a proximal, a medial, and a distal form. The examples below illustrate this distance contrast for bound demonstratives of the t-paradigm, which has the highest relative ... Read More

  • Transitive and Intransitive Verbs in Nama, a Papuan Language of Southern
           New Guinea
    • Abstract: This article describes transitive and intransitive verbs in Nama, a Papuan language of southern New Guinea, and two apparent valency reduction strategies for detransitivization (Nichols, Peterson, and Barnes 2004). Some transitive verbs can be subject to both strategies, deriving intransitive verbs with different meanings, as in the following examples with the stem fèli 'put inside':2(1)a. b. c. The article begins with some background information, first about the location and affiliation of the language and previous research on it, and then about the Nama verb and its arguments. It then goes on to describe the two strategies that exist to change transitive to intransitive constructions, and their various functions. ... Read More

Languages commonly feature a group of words descriptive of these sounds, not only enabling interlocutors to imitate sounds generated from their surroundings, but also allowing them to express their perceptions and emotions toward certain contexts. This paper investigates ideophones and interjections as well as their correlation with sound symbolism in Seediq, an Austronesian language spoken in the central and eastern parts of Taiwan.In the literature of language description, a number of terms in the sound lexicon appear to be used synonymously: "expressives," "onomatopoeia," "mimetics," ...

  • Stress and Gemination in Alor-Pantar Languages: Revising Heston (2016)
    • Abstract: Heston (2016) investigates the origin of phonemic geminates in Western Pantar (WP), a Papuan language of the Timor-Alor-Pantar family. Closely following the suggestion of Schapper, Huber, and van Engelenhoven (2014) that historical final stress was the likely cause for WP gemination, Heston (2016) argues that it arose out of a system of stress based on right-aligned moraic trochees in Proto-Timor-Alor-Pantar (PTAP). That is, he claims a relationship between PTAP syllable structure and gemination in WP, in which medial stops in PTAP words with final open syllables are reflected as singleton medial stops in WP, while medial stops in PTAP words with final closed syllables are reflected as geminate medial stops in ...

  • Postnasal Devoicing in Nasioi
    • Abstract: This squib investigates the phonological phenomenon of postnasal voicing. The voicing of obstruents immediately following a nasal is relatively common cross-linguistically, and there have been phonetic reasons cited for the recurrence of this process. The analysis of postnasal voicing has played a key role in the development of the theory of constraints in phonological theory, and launched a discussion around the phonetic grounding of constraints. Specifically, there has emerged a movement toward viewing constraints that are phonetically motivated as being more desirable than constraints that are arbitrary. This approach to phonetically grounded constraints makes the prediction that postnasal voicing is an ... Read More

  • Saisiyat Morphology
    • Abstract: Zeitoun, Chu, and kaybaybaw (2015) present an in-depth description of the morphology of the Tungho dialect of Saisiyat, a highly endangered Formosan language spoken in northwest Taiwan.1 According to the publisher's description, the book was motivated by the fact that there were few studies on Saisiyat morphology, despite it being one of the better described Formosan languages, and that Saisiyat's morphological complexity had been overlooked in the past. The book's first author, Elizabeth Zeitoun, is a leading figure in Formosan linguistics who has made many groundbreaking contributions to the description of several Formosan languages. The second author, Tai-hwa Chu, has served as Zeitoun's Saisiyat research ... Read More

  • New advances in Formosan linguistics eds. by Elizabeth Zeitoun, Stacy F.
           Teng, and Joy J. Wu (review)
    • Abstract: Formosan languages have long been known for the unique roles they play in the field of Austronesian linguistics. The diversity displayed at all levels of linguistic structure of the twenty or so languages (Li 2008) presents a fascinating microcosm within the island of Taiwan, contrasting sharply with the rest of the Austronesian language family, the most geographically widespread language family known to linguists. As a festschrift in honor of Lillian M. Huang, who has been a leading figure in Formosan linguistics, New advances in Formosan linguistics represents a crystallization of more than twenty years of contemporary development of the field. As the editors note in the Foreword (xii), Huang can be considered ... Read More

  • Linguistic atlas of French Polynesia/Atlas linguistique de la Polynésie
           française by Jean-Michel Charpentier and Alexandre François (review)
    • Abstract: French Polynesia covers a large geographic area with a high level of linguistic diversity. However, very few general linguistic studies have been conducted to provide meaningful language documentation for the region. The Linguistic atlas of French Polynesia is, therefore, a long awaited and much needed work that offers the first comprehensive overview of the linguistic diversity of French Polynesia, and provides new lexical data for several language varieties spoken in this region that are understudied and underdocumented.The Atlas, completed and published after Charpentier's death in 2014, was a collaborative effort between two accomplished Oceanic linguists. Jean-Michel Charpentier, an experienced author of ... Read More
