Abstract:

The Ninth International Conference on Austronesian Linguistics and the
Fifth International Conference on Oceanic Linguistics were both held
at The Australian National University in Canberra during Januar, 2002.

Rather than a single very diverse collection of conference papers the
conference organisers favoured a series of smaller compilations on
specific topical areas.

This volume represents such a compilation, and contains ten papers in
the area of Austronesian historical phonology. Two papers by John
Wolff concern Proto Austronesian segmental phonology: the first
presents a view of 'the sounds of Proto Austronesian', the other the
Fijian reflexes of these protophonemes. Uri Tadmor examines the fate
of *a in Malay and other western Indonesian languages. Richard McGinn
describes the raising of PMP *a in Land Dayak and Rejang. Three
papers, two by David Mead and one by Ren´┐Ż van den Berg, discuss
phonological evidence for subgrouping of Sulawesi languages. Robert
Blust deals with vowelless words in Selau (north Bougainville), John
Lynch with bilabials in Proto Loyalties, and Hans Schmidt with
'temathesis' in Rotuman.
