Abstract

546 oceanic linguistics, vol. 42, no. 2 proachable. It is densely laid-out with narrow margins and tight leading. To give some idea of its impact, I did a rough word count. In a recent Cambridge University Press book (Cameron and Kulick 2003) there are approximately 460 words per page; GTP has approximately 730 words per page when it is solid text (nearly 160% over Cambridge). In this respect GTP is typical of the Battlebridge series, and I hope that the editors can ²nd some way of getting out future volumes that have a less fran- tic and cramped appearance. I am sure that the increased readability will allow inter- esting and important work like Smith’s GTP to shine for more readers.
