  1. LINCOM EUROPA, Oceanic: Negation in Oceanic Languages

Message 1: Oceanic: Negation in Oceanic Languages

Date: Sat, 05 Jun 1999 11:45:52 +0200
Subject: Oceanic: Negation in Oceanic Languages

- Typological Studies -
Even Hovdhaugen & Ulrike Mosel (eds.)

The aim of this book is to present in-depth studies on negation in 7
Oceanic languages and a survey of negation in the New Caledonian and
Loyality Islands languages in such a way that linguists interested in
typology, linguistic theory and comparative Austronesian linguistics
will perhaps more easily find what they are looking for. Therefore the
authors of the 7 studies describe the complete sets of negatives in one
language they know from their own empirical research. The languages of
the individual studies are Saliba, Teop, N�l�mwa, Tongan, Futunan,
Tokelauan, and Tahitian.

Contents: Ulrike Mosel : Towards a typology of negation in Oceanic
languages; Anna Margetts: Negation in Saliba (Papua New Guinea, Milne
Bay Province); Ulrike Mosel & Ruth Saovana Spriggs: Negation in Teop
