A reference grammar of Puyuma, an Austronesian language of Taiwan by Stacy Fang-Ching Teng( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Puyuma people reside in southeastern Taiwan in Taitung City and Peinan Township in Taitung County. There are still fourteen extant Formosan (Austronesian) languages in Taiwan, but only thirteen indigenous groups are officially recognised by the Taiwanese government. The present study investigates the Nanwang dialect of the Puyuma language, spoken by the people in Nanwang and Paoshang Suburbs of Taitung City in southern Taiwan. The aim of this grammar is to describe the phonology and morphosyntax of Puyuma. The work is descriptive in nature, and the theoretical framework employed is Basic Linguistic Theory (BLT). BLT emphasises the need to describe each language in its own terms, rather than imposing on it concepts derived from other languages. Thus, in this study, the author abandons traditional terms used by linguists studying Philippine-type languages, such as agent focus, patient focus, locative focus, or instrumental focus, and replaces them with the terms like transitive and intransitive that are more familiar to most of the worlds linguists."--Provided by publisher

A grammar of Neve'ei, Vanuatu by Jill Musgrave( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Neve'ei language is a member of the Oceanic subgroup of the Austronesian language family. It is spoken in the village of Vinmavis on the west coast of the island of Malakula in the Republic of Vanuatu in the southwestern Pacific. It is estimated that there are approximately 500 primary speakers of Neve'ei and around 750 speakers in total. The aim of this work is to present a description of the phonology, morphology and syntax of the Neve'ei language by providing clear statements with appropriate linguistic examples. A synchronic approach is taken with no attempt being made to focus on earlier stages of the history of related languages. Likewise, no attempt is made to focus on linguistic theory or on comparisons of Neve'ei with related languages. However, references to other Oceanic languages and other studies are made where these seem to be particularly relevant to the description of Neve'ei."--Provided by publisher
