Abstract:

This study presents the history of words in the Austronesian languages: howthe forms that are attested in the current Austronesian languages developedfrom the original Proto-Austronesian. A study of this history entails thereconstruction of the sound system (phonology) of Proto-Austronesian, anexposition of the phonological processes that motivated changes, and apresentation of the rules whereby the original sounds changed into thosefound in the currently spoken languages. The primary aim of this work is toexamine exhaustively the forms that can be reconstructed forProto-Austronesian and also for the earliest stages after the Austronesianlanguages began to spread southward from Taiwan. The purpose of this studyis not just to reconstruct protomorphemes and order the reflexes accordingto the entries under which they fit, but also to account for the history ofeach form.
