This is a dissemination workshop which concentrates on topics in the Alor-Pantar languages, a group of about 20 Papuan languages spoken on several islands in eastern Indonesia. We present results on internal and external genealogical relations, spatial language and plural words, and on the typology of alignment systems in the Alor-Pantar languages. The work is supported under the European Science Foundation's EuroBABEL programme (project 'Alor-Pantar languages: origin and theoretical impact'). Funding comes from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK) under grant AH/H500251/1, the National Science Foundation (US) under BCS Grant No. 0936887, and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
