Series Title: Multilingual Matters
Description:

The Southwest Pacific from Southern China through Indonesia, Australia and
the Pacific Islands constitutes the richest linguistic region of the world.
That rich resource cannot be taken for granted. Some of its languages
have already been lost; many more are under threat. The challenge is to
describe the languages that exist today and to adopt policies that will
support their maintenance.
