  • The Genetic Status of Lamalamic: Phonological and Morphological Evidence
    • Abstract: This paper investigates the genetic status of Lamalamic, a grouping of Lamalama, Umbuygamu, and Rimanggudinhma, three languages from the Princess Charlotte Bay region on the east coast of Cape York Peninsula (Australia). Lamalamic has long been assumed to form a subgroup of Paman (Pama-Nyungan) in the literature, but its status as a genetic unit has not yet been examined in a systematic way. In this paper, I provide evidence from historical phonology and morphology to show that the three languages traditionally subsumed under Lamalamic do form a subgroup of Paman. This subgroup is defined by shared innovations in phonology and morphology, specifically the development of a voicing contrast in trills, the setup of ... Read More

  • Plural-Marking Strategies in Äiwoo
    • Abstract: It is well known that there is considerable typological variation in the marking of plurality on nouns, in terms of obligatoriness vs. optionality of marking, which classes of nouns get marked for plural (for example, human-referring as opposed to nonhuman-referring nouns), which semantic distinctions are made (as "group" vs. "distributive" plurals), and the formal properties of plural marking (for example, inflectional plurals vs. independent plural words). This paper seeks to add to our knowledge of this variation in general, and of plural-marking strategies in Oceanic in particular, by examining the marking of number on nouns in Äiwoo. Äiwoo is an Oceanic language spoken in the Reef Islands in the easternmost ... Read More

  • Directional Systems in Philippine Languages
    • Abstract: Navigation and direction-finding relies heavily on the environment. Thus, we see that the etymologies of direction terms often trace back to environment-specific features such as celestial bodies and events, wind systems, geographical formations, and other related elements. As languages are often contingent with the activities, behavior, and environment of the speakers, it is not surprising to see that the MalayoPolynesian languages encode directions often in reference to the sea. Two major orienting features are typically present in the Malayo-Polynesian languages: the land-sea axis and the monsoon systems (Adelaar 1997; Blust 1997).This paper explores the historical development of the cardinal direction terms in ...

  • Sex Differentiable Terms in Languages of Flores Island: A Comparative
           Review
    • Abstract: Found in all languages, sex differentiable terms (hereafter abbreviated as SDTs) are words, functioning as nouns or adjectives and often as both, that distinguish humans and nonhuman animals according to sex or gender. For animals, obvious English examples include 'bull' and 'cow', 'stallion' and 'mare', and 'cock' and 'hen'. Whereas English SDTs are numerous and display a marked particularizing tendency, however, Malayo-Polynesian languages employ relatively few, and these are accordingly applied to large numbers of quite diverse creatures. One example is Malay (also Bahasa Indonesia and Bahasa Malaysia), where jantan and betina distinguish sex among animals of various kinds and, contextually in some dialects ... Read More

  • Counting by Tens: Specific Counting in Southeast Solomonic Languages
    • Abstract: In addition to the rice and tobacco and meat there were said to be twenty thousand yams, besides taros provided (Ivens 1930:211).By about three o'clock all the food stood in front of Atana's house. He and his immediate kinsmen had contributed the 250 pounds of dried fish, the 3000 yam cakes, 11 bowls of yam pudding, and 8 pigs. … Nearly everybody brought along some dried fish and a few yam cakes, and several of the leaders sent a pig and a bowl of pudding as well. On the final count the various heaps contained 300 pounds of fish, nearly 5000 yam cakes, 19 bowls of pudding, and 13 pigs (Hogbin 1964:66).Walter Ivens (1930) and Ian Hogbin (1964), in the extracts above, document the large numbers of yams or yam ...

  • A Follow-up Analysis of Listener (Mis)comprehension across Language
           Varieties in Pentecost, Vanuatu
    • Abstract: There are between 105 and 138 indigenous languages spoken in villages across the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu (François et al. 2015:5–6), and it is normal for speakers of different varieties to live in close proximity to each other. Yet the question of how well people can understand each other's varieties has received little attention in the Vanuatu context. Aside from intelligibility surveys in Efate (Stahl 1994) and north-central Santo (Stahl n.d.), we are aware of no other research in Vanuatu. In 2015, we took initial steps to fill this knowledge gap by devising an intelligibility test that can be done relatively quickly and easily in a largely undeveloped, oral, rural society like Vanuatu (Gooskens and ...

  • The Plural Word hire in Alorese: Contact-Induced Change from Neighboring
           Alor-Pantar Languages
    • Abstract: This article discusses the plural word hire in Alorese, an Austronesian language spoken on the islands of Alor and Pantar in eastern Indonesia (see section 2). A plural word is "a morpheme whose meaning and function is similar to that of plural affixes in other languages, but which is a separate word that functions as a modifier of the noun" (Dryer 1989:865). An example of the plural word hire in Alorese is given in (1), where hire 'PL' modifies the noun mato 'frog'.(1) Mato  anang  hire  kado  kluar.frog  small  pl  jump  go.out(mly)'(The) small frogs jump out.'      (Frogstory_Alor_2016_06_21)The claim put forward in this paper is that the form of the plural word hire is inherited and developed from an original ...

  • Lexical Tone in Metnyo Ambel
    • Abstract: Ambel is spoken by around 1,600 people on the island of Waigeo, in the Raja Ampat archipelago in West Papua province, Indonesia. It is an Austronesian language, belonging to the South Halmahera-West New Guinea (SHWNG) subbranch (see Blust 1978). Within SHWNG, Ambel is classified as a Raja Ampat–South Halmahera language (Remijsen 2001a:32–37; Kamholz 2014). Prior to this paper, the only published materials on Ambel were a wordlist in Smits and Voorhoeve (1992), and a wordlist and a one-page overview of Ambel phonology and morphology in Remijsen (2001a). While Remijsen does not look at the phonology of Ambel in detail, he concludes that the language does not have tone (2001a:161). A full descriptive grammar of Ambel ... Read More

  • The "Mystery Aspirates" in Philippine Languages
    • Abstract: Laryngeal consonants have a long and troubled history in Austronesian (AN) languages (Brandstetter 1916:86, 248, 273, 282–85; Dempwolff 1934–38; Dyen 1953a, 1962, 1965; Tsuchida 1976; Zorc 1982, 1996; Blust 2013:546–53, 567–74). Unlike other segments that have generated controversy in phonological reconstruction, such as *z (Dyen 1951), *R (Dyen 1953b), *b (Prentice 1974), or *d (Dahl 1976:58ff; Ross 1992:40ff), laryngeals in a small number of languages often correspond to zero in the majority of witnesses, raising questions about whether they have been added in a few languages, or lost in all others.Dempwolff's reconstruction of the Uraustronesisch laryngeals was methodologically flawed, and in correcting it Dyen ...

  • In Memoriam: Jean-Claude Rivierre, 1938–2018
    • Abstract: We would have celebrated his 80th birthday in June 2018.He left us without warning, to join David, one of his sons, and his wife Françoise Ozanne-Rivierre (see Tryon 2008), an eminent linguist like himself.At his funeral, one of his nephews aptly characterized his personality in terms of four qualities: timeless, balanced, humble, and straightforward, as somebody who never praised himself for what he had done for the Kanaks, whose gratitude and admiration of him has never diminished over the years. With his in-depth analyses of several Kanak languages of the Far South and of the Isle of Pines, in the form of dictionaries (Paicî, Cèmuhî, Numèè, and Bwatoo), grammars (Cèmuhî), and analyses of sound systems ...

  • The dynamics of nominal classification: Productive and lexicalised uses of
           gender agreement in Mawng by Ruth Singer (review)
    • Abstract: Nominal classifications in languages are morphosyntactic systems that impose a classification on their nominal lexicon, as shown by the masculine/feminine/neuter grammatical gender distinction in German and other Indo-European languages, or the lexico-syntactic numeral classifiers widespread in East and South East Asian languages, such as Mandarin Chinese (Aikhenvald 2000; Seifart 2010). Linguists are interested in these systems due to their diverse lexical and pragmatic functions as well as their cognitive and cultural correlates. Most recent studies have shown that languages rely on different types of nominal classification to express related functions such as the expansion of the referential power of the lexicon ...

  • North Borneo sourcebook: Vocabularies and functors by Jason William Lobel
           (review)
    • Abstract: Jason Lobel's North Borneo sourcebook: Vocabularies and functors is a valuable collection of lexical data for 46 languages of northern Borneo. The volume is closely modeled after Reid (1971), and anyone familiar with this earlier work will see the obvious parallels. The data, 500 basic lexical items plus 94 "functors" for 46 languages of northern Borneo, were mostly gathered by Lobel himself. The exception is Bonggi, data for which were provided by Michael Boutin (1). As a data resource, the volume is a welcome addition to the growing field of Bornean linguistics. The book will be most useful for comparitavists, and those who need a resource for quick word look-ups and comparison between multiple languages. Absent ... Read More
