Loren Billings and Nelleke Goudswaard, eds. 2010. Piakandatu ami Dr. Howard P. McKaughan. Manila: Linguistic Society of the Philippines and SIL Philippines, xvi + 317 pp. + CD attached. ISBN 978-971-780-026-4. $17.50, paper. According to the SIL synopsis, Piakandatu ami--in honor of--Dr. Howard P. McKaughan is a collection of 42 papers celebrating McKaughan's distinguished career as a linguist, covering time spent in Mexico, the Philippines, Hawai`i, Papua New Guinea, Vietnam, Thailand, and Sabah, Malaysia, as well as the establishment of linguistic departments at the University of Hawai`i and Payap University in Thailand. The volume includes both full analytical papers and short vignettes from many who have been influenced by McKaughan (http://www.sil.org/asia/philippines/piakandatu_hpm.html). Altogether, there are 47 authors, representing a veritable who's who or who's new in Philippine (or Austronesian) linguistics or in the language world at large.1 I sincerely take my hat off to the editors for casting such a wide net. It is truly admirable to see a festschrift with so many contributors from such a variety of arenas in the peripatetic life of Howard McKaughan. Because of the breadth and outreach of all of these articles combined, there is probably no one who could do this kind
