Abstract:

This monograph is a collection of selected papers on Oceanic languages. For
the first time, aspects of the morphology and syntax of Oceanic languages
such as the encoding of sentence types, the structure of the noun phrase,
noun incorporation, constituent order, and ergative vs. accusative alignment
are discussed from a comparative point of view, thus drawing attention to
genetic, areal and language-specific features. The individual papers are
based on the field work of the authors on lesser-described and endangered
languages and are basically descriptive studies. At the same time they also
explore the theoretical implications of the data presented and analyzed, as
well as the historical development of certain morpho-syntactic phenomena,
without basing these explorations on a single theoretical framework.

The book provides new insights into the morphosyntactic structures of
Oceanic languages and is of interest primarily for linguists working on
Austronesian, in particular Melanesian, Micronesian, and Polynesian
languages, but also for typologists and linguists working on language change.
