    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This volume provides descriptive sketches of the Papuan languages scattered over the islands of Timor, Alor, and Pantar at the western perimeter of Melanesia. Timor-Alor-Pantar languages are a group of related "Papuan outliers," which until recently were largely undocumented. This book provides an authoritative and comprehensive overview of the unique and diverse grammars of the Timor-Alor-Pantar languages.
