A bibliography of the languages of Borneo (and Madagascar). Borneo Research Council Reference Series, vol. 2. Phillips, ME: Borneo Research Council. vi + 218 pp. + CD-ROM. ISBN 1-929900-15-5. $35.00, paper. Robert Blust, Alexander Smith, and the Borneo Research Council should be thanked for making this valuable research tool available in the form of both a book and an accompanying CD. Blust and Smith (hereafter B&S) begin with a brief history of this bibliography which started with Blust's 1971 fieldwork in Sarawak, developed over the years in a graduate seminar that he taught at the University of Hawai`i at Mnoa, and culminated with his spring 2013 seminar class. A two-page introduction (v­vi) briefly explains why the languages of Madagascar and the Sama-Bajau languages of the Philippines and non-Bornean Indonesia are included in the bibliography, but not the Chamic or Malayic languages that lie outside of Borneo. The bibliography is divided into two main parts. Part 1 (1­12) provides an overview of the languages of Borneo, which includes a discussion of the history, origins, and migrations of Malay, Malagasy, and Sama-Bajau languages.
