This volume contains papers describing and discussing language change in the Austronesian languages of eastern Indonesia and Taiwan. The issues discussed include the unusual development of verbal infixes in the Cendrawasih Bay languages, dialect variations, patterns of borrowing and language contact in Taiwan and in Flores-Alor-Pantar languages of Indonesia, diachronic and synchronic aspects of voice systems of Sulawesi languages, and the reconstruction of Proto Austronesian personal pronouns. This volume should be of interest to Austronesianists and historical linguists.
