  • The Particle kai in Bimanese
    • Abstract: Bimanese, a Central Malayo-Polynesian (CMP)2 language spoken in the eastern half of the island of Sumbawa, Indonesia, makes use of three different applicative particles to increase the valency of the verb: kai, laɓo/laʔo, and ʋea. The three differ in their syntactic distribution, as well as in the semantic roles that they add. Ʋea which adds benefactive arguments, only occurs within the verb complex. Laɓo/laʔo, which adds comitative arguments, can occur within the verb complex, but this usage is relatively rare, and laɓo/laʔo mostly functions as a preposition. In our entire corpus, for example, there are only two instances of laɓo/laʔo within the verb complex. Kai, on the other hand, freely occurs both within the ... Read More

  • Conditioned Sound Changes in the Rapanui Language
    • Abstract: All languages change over time and Rapanui, the language of Easter Island, is not an exception. Sound change is a process of language change that either affects the realization of a phoneme (phonetic change) or restructures the phonological system of the language under discussion (phonological change). Sound change usually involves the replacement of one sound or a phonetic feature by another, the complete loss of sound, or the insertion of a sound in a place where there previously was none. Sound changes are often environmentally conditioned, meaning that the change in question only occurs in a defined sound environment, whereas in other environments the same speech sound is not affected by the change. Sound ... Read More

  • The Plural Marker in Kove, an Oceanic Language of Papua New Guinea
    • Abstract: There are four ways in which languages mark plurality (Corbett 2000:133): (i) the usage of a separate word in a noun phrase (number words), (ii) agreement on other elements such as verbs or demonstratives (syntax), (iii) morphological marking on nouns (morphology), and (iv) lexical marking on nouns (lexical means).Many Oceanic languages generally do not have inflectional marking for plurality on nouns,2 and unmarked nouns can express both singular and plural meanings (Lynch, Ross, and Crowley 2002:37). However, these languages do use some marking strategies to distinguish singular and plural, mostly involving number words or syntax. In many languages, numerals or quantity words are used to identify the number of ... Read More

  • Malakula Internal Subgrouping: Phonological Evidence
    • Abstract: The 32 or so languages of Malakula probably belong to a single subgroup of the Central Vanuatu subgroup of Southern Oceanic (Lynch 2007), though since many are still not well described, we cannot as yet be completely sure about this. In particular, we cannot at this stage show morphosyntactic innovations that define the Malakula subgroup as a whole, or any of its component subgroups, though there are some innovations of a phonological nature that support various subgrouping hypotheses. These form the main thrust of this paper.In the remainder of this section, I deal with preliminary matters concerning the nature of phonological innovations and the quality and quantity of available data on Malakula languages. ...

  • Belief, Evidence, and Interactional Meaning in Urama
    • Abstract: The role that clause-final particles play in many Papuan languages is often to encode tense or mood meanings (Foley 1986). This paper discusses the use of two clause-final particles in Urama. These particles have been claimed to mark clause type, tense, or evidentiality in the (very scarce) literature on the language (cf. Brown 2009; Craig 2014; Brown et al. to appear). We present minimal pair contexts to support a view of these particles as encoding meaning that is both rooted in their “core” semantics, but goes beyond this in certain pragmatic contexts. The idea is that the use of these particles tracks information that is either known or new to the speech act participants. In a nutshell, sentences marked with ... Read More

  • Information Structure in Northern Amis: A Morphosyntactic Analysis

A few short samples originating from these spontaneous speech productions have also been recorded as elicited material.Beyond the analysis of the specific morphosyntactic strategies expressing left-dislocated topics and various types of foci, the questions addressed are concerned with the way in which pragmatically marked focus constructions interact with voice and with the privileged syntactic argument (PSA) or pivot.There is a long tradition of analysis of the voice system in Philippine-type ...

  • Semantic Verb Classes and Regularity of Voice Paradigms in Tagalog
    • Abstract: Different claims have been made regarding regularity of voice paradigms in Tagalog. There seem to be two major hypotheses on this matter:“chaotic voice”: the voice system is claimed to be highly irregular, with variation both in number and type of available voice forms; for example, “no general rules can be given for the occurrence or nonoccurrence of a base with any particular major affix” (Schachter and Otanes 1972:283);“anything goes”: the number and type of voices in voice paradigms depend only on available participants; for example, “any Tagalog root can take any voice as long as the conceptual representation of the root provides for the relevant participant. … Crucially, it must be realized that the voice ...

  • Bride-price, Baskets, and the Semantic Domain of “Carrying” in
           a Matrilineal Society
    • Abstract: The semantic domain of “carrying” in the Oceanic language, Longgu, consists of a lexically specific set of verbs, including one that can be understood through the frame of a bride-price event, sungi, which involves the use of a pera basket, which women carry on their heads in this event as well as in everyday life. This paper discusses the semantic domain of carrying in Longgu and suggests that the domain is culturally salient and that one verb in the domain (sungia ‘carry something [supported] on the head’) has cultural significance because of its links to the bride-price event, the basket used in this event, and the role of women in this matrilineal society.Studies of action verbs in typologically distinct ...

  • Papapana Re~redu~reduplicates: Multiple Reduplication in an Endangered
           Northwest Solomonic Language
    • Abstract: Austronesian languages are well known for reduplication. Reduplication is a pattern where “the double or multiple occurrence of a sound string, syllable, morpheme or word within a larger syntagmatic unit is in systematic contrast with its single occurrence,” and the repeated elements fill functionally nondistinct positions (Moravcsik 1992:323). Although there is a range of formal patterns, Austronesian reduplication typically involves CV (syllable) or CVCV (foot) reduplication and affects numerous word classes for various purposes, including derivation, valency-changing, and plural-marking. This paper describes the functions and typologically unusual forms of reduplication in Papapana, a highly endangered language ... Read More

  • Problematic Protoforms: Some “Hidden” Indic Loans in Western
           Malayo-Polynesian Languages
    • Abstract: During my research on language contact across the Bay of Bengal, I have encountered a number of lexical items shared by different language families, including Austronesian (specifically Western Malayo-Polynesian). These are typically culture words, which are known to cross language boundaries more frequently than basic vocabulary. As these early borrowings underwent every phonological innovation in force during and after their transmission into the recipient (proto)language, we do not always find a phonological signal in the daughter languages indicating external origins. Otto Dempwolff (1938:10) referred to these phonologically regular loans with the term “naturalized loanword” (eingebürgertes Lehnwort). Mahdi ... Read More

  • How Did Long Terawan Berawan Develop Sixteen Vowel Phonemes?
    • Abstract: The phonology of Long Terawan Berawan (henceforth LTn) has received considerable attention in the last three decades. Asmah’s (1983) sketch of the language includes a brief phonological description. Blust’s articles on Berawan focus on the historically peculiar development of geminate consonants in LTn (1992) and in Berawan varieties in general (1995), whereas Blust (2000) discusses the phenomenon of low vowel fronting in North Sarawak languages, including LTn. Clayre (1996) provides a comprehensive description of the consonant and vowel phoneme systems of LTn. Burkhardt (2008) revisits Clayre’s article and confirms her analysis as far as the number of vowel and consonant phonemes is concerned, but proposes a ... Read More

  • Avoidance of Dissimilar Labial Onsets: The Case of Subanon
    • Abstract: The foundations of Austronesian (An) comparative linguistics were laid by Otto Dempwolff (1934–1938) in a three-volume work that presented a reconstructed phonology, a major phonologically defined subgroup (“Melanesisch” = Oceanic), and a vocabulary of about 2,200 base forms conforming to either the canonical shape CVCVC, or to CVCCVC in historically reduplicated monosyllables such as *but-but ‘pluck, pull out’, *sepsep ‘sip, suck’, or *tuktuk ‘knock, pound, beat’. Dempwolff himself did not comment on the phonotactic properties of his reconstructed vocabulary, but a little over a quarter of a century later Chrétien (1965) conducted a careful statistical examination of segmental distributions in this material, and ...

  • Imperatives and Commands in Manambu
    • Abstract: Most languages have a construction used exclusively for directive speech acts (commands, orders, instructions, and so on). Imperatives typically differ from their declarative counterparts—sometimes they have fewer grammatical categories, other times more.2 As Enfield (2004:3) put it, “grammar is thick with cultural meaning. Encoded in the semantics of grammar we find cultural values and ideas, we find clues about social structures which speakers maintain.” The ways in which imperatives and other directive speech acts—including wishes, entreaties, invitations, and more—are framed may reflect societal structures, interpersonal relationships, and gender roles. Other, nonimperative, structures may be used in directive ... Read More

  • When Synthetic Meets Analytic: A Note on Structural Borrowing in Kaxabu
           Pazeh
    • Abstract: It is uncontroversial that the affixes pa- and pa-ka- can be reconstructed to Proto-Austronesian as the causative prefix of dynamic and stative verbs, respectively (Brandstetter 1916; Reid 1994; Blust 1999a, 2003; Zeitoun and Huang 2000). The canonical usage of pa-ka- as a causative prefix attached to stative roots is exemplified in the following data from Puyuma (1) and Rukai (2), two Formosan languages from different primary branches of the Austronesian family (Blust 1999b; Ross 2009).2puyumama-puni     na       patraka.        [Stative]stat-rotten     df.nom   meat‘The meat is rotten.’bias na wari i,    pa-ka-puni       kana patraka.

  • In Memoriam, Ann Chowning, 1929–2016
    • Abstract: Ann Chowning died in Auckland on February 25, 2016, aged 86.1 A superb ethnographer who did extensive fieldwork in four different Austronesian-speaking societies of western Melanesia, she also made important contributions to Oceanic linguistics and culture history, including substantial dictionaries of four languages and more than 20 papers, chiefly on comparative-historical topics. She also published on Mayan archaeology, prehistoric flint industries in New Britain, and folklore.Chowning’s life and career as ethnographer, archaeologist, and teacher are well described in a biographical sketch (Huntsman with Chowning 2005) in her Festschrift, a volume aptly titled A polymath anthropologist: Essays in honour of Ann ...

  • Javaans–Nederlands Woordenboek by Rob van Albada and Th. Pigeaud
           (review)
    • Abstract: The lexicography of the Javanese language has had a checkered career, and is an ongoing process. It started in the nineteenth century, when Dutch scholars began the process of compiling lists of Javanese words, in the context of their contact with the population for the purposes of the colonial project. These efforts culminated in the dictionary known as “Gericke & Roorda,” which appeared in its final edition in 1901. This is the two-volume Javaansch–Nederlandsch Handwoordenboek of J. F. C. Gericke and T. Roorda, improved and expanded by A. C. Vreede with the collaboration of J. G. H. Gunning (Leiden: E. J. Brill, 1901). Here all the entries and examples are printed in Javanese script. Other manuscript materials ... Read More

  • Grammar of the Lihir language of New Ireland, Papua New Guinea by Karl
           Neuhaus (review)
    • Abstract: The Lihir language community has the mixed blessing of a large-scale gold mining operation on its main island of Aniolam (< a ‘art’ + nua ‘island’ + lam ‘large’) off New Ireland in Papua New Guinea. This has brought many changes to their island lifestyles, but also given them greater resources to devote to documenting and preserving older traditions. Fortunately, Karl Neuhaus (N), a German missionary long resident among the Lihir people, left them another “gold mine” of a different type, a manuscript grammar of their language from 1935, which was reproduced on microfilm by the Anthropos Institute in 1954, and has now been translated into English by Simon Ziegler, with support from the Lihir Cultural Heritage ...
