Abstract:

The Austronesian language family is the largest language family in the
world, yet its members are relatively little studied, particularly from a
formal perspective. Interestingly, because these languages exhibit
typologically unusual properties, they pose important challenges to
linguistic theory. Any theory that postulates a grammar that is common to
all languages must take into account the particular characteristics of this
language family. The contributions to this volume comprise five chapters on
phonology and twelve chapters on syntax, all addressing aspects of these
Austronesian challenges. The volume presents new data, new analyses of old
data, and comparisons of closely related languages, as well as comparisons
to languages outside of the language family. Taken together they form a
unique picture of Austronesian linguistics.

This volume will be of interest to researchers and students in phonetics,
phonology, morphology, syntax, and language typology, as well as scholars
of Austronesian languages.
