Title: The Many Faces of Austronesian Voice Systems
Subtitle: Some new empirical studies
Edited By: I Wayan Arka
Malcolm D. Ross
Series Title: Pacific Linguistics
Description:

The Ninth International Conference on Austronesian Linguistics and the
Fifth International Conference on Oceanic Linguistics were both held at
The Australian National University in Canberra during January 2002. Rather
than publish a single very diverse collection of conference papers, the
organisers favoured a series of smaller compilations on specific topics.
One such volume, on Austronesian historical phonology, has already been
published by Pacific Linguistics as Issues in Austronesian historical
phonology by John Lynch.

The present volume represents another such compilation. It contains an
introduction by the editors and ten papers on voice in Austronesian
languages which provide both fresh data and some new perspectives on old
problems. The papers touch on the many faces of Austronesian voice systems,
ranging geographically from Teng on Puyuma in Taiwan to Otsuka on Tongan,
typologically from voice in agglutinative languages in Taiwan and the
Philippines to voice in isolating languages (Arka and Kosmas on Manggarai
and Donohue on Palu'e), and in approach from Clayre's areal/historical
survey of Kelabitic languages in Borneo to single-language studies of voice
like Davies on Madurese, Quick on Pendau, and the Andersens on Moronene.
Katagiri and Kaufman each take a fresh look at an aspect of Tagalog voice.
