Title: Proto-Austronesian Phonology with Glossary
Written By: John U. Wolff
Description:

This study presents the history of words in the Austronesian languages: how
the forms that are attested in the current Austronesian languages developed
from the original Proto-Austronesian. A study of this history entails the
reconstruction of the sound system (phonology) of Proto-Austronesian, an
exposition of the phonological processes that motivated changes, and a
presentation of the rules whereby the original sounds changed into those
found in the currently spoken languages. The primary aim of this work is to
examine exhaustively the forms that can be reconstructed for
Proto-Austronesian and also for the earliest stages after the Austronesian
languages began to spread southward from Taiwan. The purpose of this study
is not just to reconstruct protomorphemes and order the reflexes according
to the entries under which they fit, but also to account for the history of
each form.
