The essays in this book were written in honour of Dr Tom Dutton, who
worked in the Department of Linguistics of the Research School of
Pacific and Asian Studies at The Australian National University from
1969 until 1997. Tom made a major contribution to our understanding
of the languages of Papua New Guinea, and especially of central and
south-east Papua.

Included in the book are essays on Papuan languages by Bernard Comrie
(Haruai), Mark Donohue (Burmeso), Cynthia Farr (Korafe), Karl Franklin
(Foe, Fasu and Enga), Volker Heeschen (Eipo and Yale), Francesca
Merlan and Alan Rumsey (Ku Waru), the late Otto Nekitel (Abu'
Arapesh), Meredith Osmond (Chimbu--Wahgi languages), Andrew Pawley
(Proto Trans New Guinea), Malcolm Ross (east Papuan languages), Evelyn
Todd (Bilua), C.L. Voorhoeve (Proto Awyu-Dumut) and Apoi Yarapea
(Kewa).

Contributions on Oceanic Austronesian languages are by Robert Blust
(reduplicated colour terms), Joel Bradshaw (Iwal), Ann Chowning (plant
names), Susanne Holzknecht (Duwet), John Lynch (possession) and Gunter
Senft (Kilivila). There are two contributions are on Pacific pidgins,
by Peter Muehlhaeusler and Darrell Tryon, and one on language
endangerment by the late Stephen Wurm.
