Insular Southeast Asia: Linguistic and cultural studies in honour of Bernd Nothofer (review)

Insular Southeast Asia: Linguistic and cultural studies in honour of Bernd Nothofer. Wiesbaden: Harrassowitz Verlag. xx + 190 pp. ISBN 978-3-447-05477-5. 58.00, paper. This is a festschrift for Bernd Nothofer, long-time professor of Southeast Asian Studies at Frankfurt, on the occasion of his 65th birthday and implicitly, because he was a professor at a university in Germany, his attendant retirement. The volume opens with an appreciation of Nothofer's life and publications, followed by a series of articles by his friends and colleagues. Following Yulia E. K.'s poem "Guruku II" (i.e., "My teacher II") (ix), Holger Warnk's piece "Badminton in Brunei: Some personal notes on Bernd Nothofer" (xi­xv) presents an often light-hearted survey of Nothofer's life, for example, describing his first academic job as a French instructor at Millersville State College in Pennsylvania as "a rather Herculean task" (xi). Of course, Warnk also lauds Nothofer's seminal work on the languages of Java, including his 1973 Yale PhD dissertation "The reconstruction of Proto­Malayo-Javanic," which became his first academic publication (Nothofer 1975).
