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.
