Series:Pacific Linguistics [PL]
Aims and Scope
These volumes present descriptive sketches of the Papuan languages scattered over the islands of Timor, Alor, and Pantar. Together they comprise an authoritative and comprehensive overview of the unique and diverse grammars of the Timor-Alor-Pantar languages. The Timor-Alor-Pantar languages are a group of related "Papuan outliers" located at the western perimeter of the Melanesian area, which until recently were largely undocumented.
