Abstract:

Characteristic of many of the Oceanic languages of the Pacific is the
presence of several valency-changing devices. This work is an
historical study of three valency-increasing and two
valency-decreasing morphemes, presenting descriptions of their
reflexes in a number of modern Oceanic languages and a detailed
reconstruction of their forms and functions in the ancestor language,
Proto Oceanic. The reconstructions of valency-changing devices is
presented within of an analysis of morphosyntactic classes of verbs,
both in the modern languages and in Proto Oceanic.

This is the first volume in the Studies in Language Change series,
published by Pacific Linguistics in association with the Centre for
Research on Language Change at the Australian National University.
