  • Definiteness and Referentiality in Rapa Nui: The Interplay of Determiners
           and Demonstratives
    • Abstract: Rapa Nui is the Polynesian language spoken on Easter Island (Chile). All Polynesian languages have an article derived from Proto-Polynesian (PPN) *te (usually te, but Tongan he, Samoan le). It is commonly accepted that this article does not express definiteness; it is often characterized as specific. The Rapa Nui reflex of this article is te. It is the only article in the language and belongs to the category of determiners, elements occurring in the same slot in the noun phrase.Section 2 gives a brief overview of the structure of the noun phrase. Section 3 deals with the inventory and distribution of determiners. Distributional data indicate that the category of determiners includes the article te, demonstrative ... Read More

  • Dynamism and Change in the Possessive Classifier System of Iaai
    • Abstract: This paper aims at studying the evolution of the possessive classifier system of Iaai, an Oceanic language of New Caledonia. First, I introduce the sociolinguistic and ethnolinguistic background of the study (1.1), providing some general considerations and terminology required for understanding the expression of possession in Oceanic languages (1.2). Second, I describe the possessive classifier system of Iaai and its main characteristics according to Ozanne-Rivierre (1976). This section details the system's inventory (2.1), its semantic scope (2.2), and the features of fluidity and variation inherent in such a system (2.3); and it outlines a quick comparison with Iaai's sister languages (2.4). The third part of the ... Read More

  • Toward Paradigm Uniformity: A Longitudinal Study in Alamblak
    • Abstract: The traditional land of the Alamblak community lies in the East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea, along the middle Karawari River and the Wagupmeri River, and on the shores of Kuvenmas Lake. The Alamblak people numbered 1,200 people in 1970, according to census numbers available at that time. Extrapolating from population growth of the largest village of Amongabi, and documented increases of family sizes there, the author estimates that the population of the whole lanuage group in 2010 was close to 2,400.1 The Ethnologue, however, listed the population in 2000 at 1,530. The language is in vigorous use locally and not immediately in danger of extinction.This study compares the verb and noun inflectional paradigms ... Read More

  • Evidence of Contact between Binanderean and Oceanic Languages
    • Abstract: The Binanderean (Bin) languages form a subgroup of the widespread Trans-New Guinea (TNG) family (Smallhorn 2011). They extend from southern Morobe Province into most of Oro Province (formerly Northern Province, Papua); see map 1. The 270 km of coastline they occupy lacks any Austronesian (An) languages. This is very unusual for the New Guinea mainland, where An languages are scattered all along the coast and offshore islands from past the Indonesian border all the way around to Central Papua. The nearest Austronesian (An) neighbors of present-day Bin languages are members of two Oceanic (Oc) subgroups: to the north, the Huon Gulf family in the North New Guinea cluster; and to the south, the Papuan Tip cluster in ...

  • Epenthetic and Contrastive Glottal Stops in Amarasi
    • Abstract: In this paper, I provide an analysis of initial glottal stops in Amarasi, spoken in western Timor. I show that some prevocalic word-initial glottal stops are automatic epenthetic insertions, while others are distinctive. However, despite this difference, only a handful of initial glottal stops in the language can be securely identified as either distinctive or automatic. In most cases, the status of any particular prevocalic wordinitial glottal stop in Amarasi is ambiguous.Within phonology, it is often the case that certain phonetic segments are not present in all environments. Instead, there can be an alternation between two forms of a morpheme: one form that occurs with a particular segment and another form in ... Read More

  • The Western Malayo-Polynesian Problem
    • Abstract: The current view of Austronesian (An) higher-order subgroups grew out of earlier proposals (Blust 1977, 1983-84, 1993, 1999) and often includes a Western Malayo-Polynesian (WMP) node within the larger Malayo-Polynesian group, which itself includes the languages of the Philippines, western Indonesia, Malaysia, Sulawesi, Chamic, Malagasy, Chamorro, and Palauan. Blust (1977:2) was the first to make this proposal, which is often repeated in more general literature (Tryon 1995; Bellwood 2007; Blust 2013). It is widely understood, however, that despite the implication that WMP languages may have descended from a discrete Proto-Western Malayo-Polynesian (PWMP) language, WMP does not form a legitimate subgroup and that WMP ...

  • Regular Metathesis in Batanic (Northern Philippines)'
    • Abstract: Batanic (aka Bashiic) is a group of four closely related Austronesian (An) languages spoken in the Babuyan and Batanes islands of the northern Philippines, and on Orchid Island (Lanyu), off the southeast coast of Taiwan. These languages, variously named from the Batanes Islands, or from the Bashi channel between the northernmost islands of the Philippines and southern Taiwan, form part of a larger subgroup that contains nearly all languages of the Philippines, as well as the Sangiric, Minahasan, and Gorontalic languages in northern Sulawesi, central Indonesia.2 The Batanic languages, some containing important dialect divisions, from north to south are:•Yami (Orchid Island, Taiwan),•Itbayaten (Itbayat, the ...

  • Nukna grammar sketch by Matthew A. Taylor (review)
    • Abstract: Nukna (ISO code klt) is a Papuan language spoken by approximately 1,000 individuals in Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea. This language is reported to be used extensively in the community, although Tok Pisin and English are used in schools. Existing documentation and description of this language includes Taylor's (2006) sociolinguistic study, with few other widely available publications on the language. Taylor's Nukna grammar sketch (NGS), published by SIL-PNG Academic Publications, adds significantly to this existing description and is based on data collected over approximately eight years with the Summer Institute of Linguistics. Although it is labeled a "grammar sketch," this book is certainly more robust that ... Read More

  • A dictionary of Owa, a language of the Solomon Islands by Greg Mellow
           (review)
    • Abstract: The languages of the Southeast Solomon Islands are among the best described in any part of the Pacific. This is particularly true with regard to lexicography, as dictionaries (some of them quite substantial) exist for no fewer than seven of the languages of Malaita, Makira (San Cristobal), and their immediate satellites. In order of publication year these are Sa'a and Ulawa (Ivens 1929), Arosi (Fox 1970), 'Āre'āre (Geerts 1970), Lau (Fox 1974), Kwaio (Keesing 1975), and Toqabaqita (Lichtenberk 2008); the seventh and most recent of these contributions is the dictionary under review.According to the introductory material, Owa is spoken in the Star Harbour area of Makira, and on the smaller islands of Santa Ana1 (Owa ...

  • The journeys of besieged languageseds. by Delyn Day, Poia Rewi, and
           Rawinia Higgins (review)
    • Abstract: The purpose of the volume is to "hear the voices from some of the languages that find themselves pushed to the peripheries and margins" (vii). As such, the book contains descriptions of fourteen languages, most of which are indigenous and endangered, that have been "besieged" by more dominant languages.Of particular interest to readers of this journal will be the four chapters that focus on languages of Oceania: Hawaiian, Tahitian, Māori, and Barngarla (an Australian aboriginal language). The other languages span the rest of the globe: Hebrew, Piedmontese, Romani, Kashubian, Kernewek (Cornish), Welsh, Scottish Gaelic, Kalaallisut (Greenland), Cree, and Ojibway. The approach and focus of each chapter varies ... Read More
