Title: Papers in Austronesian Linguistics NO.3.
Edited By: Hein Steinhauer

This volume deals with morphological problems in non-Oceanic Malayo-Polynesian languages. The papers were contributions to the sixth International Conference on Austronesian Linguistics (Honolulu, 1991). Focus, or what remains of it, is the topic of papers by D.G. Arms (Sindangan Subanan), P.R. Kroeger (Kimaragang Dusun), Beatrice Clayre (Borneo languages) and R. van der Berg and N. P. Himmelmann (languages of Sulawesi). Donna Evans discusses causatives (Kaili), Barbara Friberg person marking (in Konjo), U. Sirk verbal suffixes (western Indonesian languages). Papers by A. van Engelenhoven and H. Steinhauer concern syncronic metathesis in the Central Malayo-Polynesian languages (Letinese and Dawanese).
