Title: Negation in Oceanic Languages
Subtitle: - Typological Studies -
Edited By: Even Hovdhaugen

Series Title: LINCOM Studies in Australian Languages 02
Description:

Negation in Oceanic Languages
- Typological Studies -

Even Hovdhaugen & Ulrike Mosel (eds.)

The aim of this book is to present in-depth studies on negation in 7 Oceanic languages and a survey of negation in the New Caledonian and Loyality Islands languages in such a way that linguists interested in typology, linguistic theory and comparative Austronesian linguistics will perhaps more easily find what they are looking for. Therefore the authors of the 7 studies describe the complete sets of negatives in one language they know from their own empirical research. The languages of the individual studies are Saliba, Teop, Nêlêmwa, Tongan, Futunan, Tokelauan, and Tahitian.

Contents: Ulrike Mosel : Towards a typology of negation in Oceanic languages; Anna Margetts: Negation in Saliba (Papua New Guinea, Milne Bay Province); Ulrike Mosel & Ruth Saovana Spriggs: Negation in Teop (Bougainville, North Solomon Islands); Claire Moyse-Faurie & Françoise Ozanne-Rivierre: Negation in New Caledonian and Loyality Islands languages; Isabelle Brill: Negation in Nêlêmwa (New Caledonia); Jürgen Broschart: Negation in Tongan; Claire Moyse-Faurie: Negation in East Futunan (Futuna, Wallis and Futuna Islands); Arnfinn Muruvik Vonen: Negation in Tokelauan; Gilbert Lazard & Louise Peltzer: La négation en tahitien; Bibliography.
