Abstract

Elizabeth Zeitoun, ed. 2004. Fait de langues: Revue de linguistique no 23­24: Les langues austronésiennes. Paris: OPHRYS, avec le concours du Centre National du Livre et du CNRS. 473 pp. + 2 pp. advertisements, 2 pp. maps. 53,00 (France), 63,00 (elsewhere), paper. In this collection, Elizabeth Zeitoun, well known for her work on Formosan languages, gathers together 25 papers in an attempt to "give an overview of current linguistic research in Austronesian languages" (7) to a francophone audience. It is therefore not, nor does it claim to be, an encyclopedic work on the Austronesian language family in the tradition of Tryon (1995). All the papers are in French, six--those by Reid and Liao, Ross, Starosta, Hsin, Austin, and Radetzky--having been translated and adapted from the English by the compiler/editor herself (designated "scientific director") with the assistance of a number of colleagues. Two of these--Reid and Liao, and Ross-- had previously appeared in the Taiwanese journal Language and Linguistics. Wisely, example sentences in translated articles retain their English translations in addition to the French.
