Abstract:

This book is a collection of papers taking different approaches to the
problems of classifying languages and varieties of languages within the
Austronesian language family. A number of different approaches to
historical genetic classification are taken in the papers by Mark Donohue
on southeast Sulawesi, Malcolm Ross on Malayic languages, and Jae Jung Song
on the Micronesian languages. The papers by Victoria Rau and René van den
Berg deal with dialectology of Atayal from Taiwan and Muna from southeast
Sulawesi respectively. Terry Crowley's paper presents an emic approach to
language classification by looking at different indigenous ways of
classifying Oceanic languages and language varieties.
