Volume 2 brings together four new sketches of Timor-Alor-Pantar languages. Each sketch is written by specialist linguists on the basis of their own original field work conducted in the last decade. The languages show significant grammatical variation which will be of great interest to typologists and historical linguists. A substantial introduction orients the reader in the major issues, both historical and typological, of TAP linguistics.
