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.
