"The Austronesian-speaking populations of the world are estimated to number more than 270 million people, living in a broad swathe around half the globe, from Madagascar to Easter Island and from Taiwan to New Zealand.

The papers examine current ideas on the linguistics, prehistory, anthropology and recorded history of the Austronesians.

Oceanic encounters : exchange, desire, violence by Margaret Jolly( )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, the result of ongoing collaborations between Australian and French anthropologists, historians and linguists, explores encounters between Pacific peoples and foreigners during the longue duree of European exploration, colonisation and settlement from the sixteenth century to the twentieth century. It deploys the concept of 'encounter' rather than the more common idea of 'first contact' for several reasons. Encounters with Europeans occurred in the context of extensive prior encounters and exchanges between Pacific peoples, manifest in the distribution of languages and objects and in patterns of human settlement and movement. The concept of encounter highlights the mutuality in such meetings of bodies and minds, whereby preconceptions from both sides were brought into confrontation, dialogue, mutual influence and ultimately mutual transformation. It stresses not so much prior visions of 'strangers' or 'others' but the contingencies in events of encounter and how senses other than vision were crucial in shaping reciprocal appraisals. But a stress on mutual meanings and interdependent agencies in such cross-cultural encounters should not occlude the tumultuous misunderstandings, political contests and extreme violence which also characterised Indigenous-European interactions over this period."--Publisher's website
Conversational Tahitian : an introduction to the Tahitian language of French Polynesia by D. T Tryon( Book )

13 editions published in 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tahitian is spoken throughout French Polynesia as the lingua franca. In spite of this, until now the only Tahitian grammars have been written either in French or with a heavily ecclesiastical aim. This book caters for the need for a general introduction to the Tahitian language written in English. It is a comprehensive study based on modern linguistic techniques, but presented in non-technical language. By means of a series of lessons, exercises, and passages for translation, the reader becomes familiar with the basic and recurring grammatical structures used in everyday situations, while at the same time learning something of the culture and customs of the inhabitants of French Polynesia. Both the language specialist and the traveller to the Polynesian islands will find this book an invaluable guide to the study of the Tahitian language
