Possesive Markers in Central Pacific Languages (review)

Abstract

oceanic linguistics, vol. 41, no. 1 Steven Roger Fischer, ed. 2000. Possessive markers in Central Paci²c languages. Sprachtypologie und Universalienforschung [STUF] (Language Typology and Universals) 53(3/4):227­374. Berlin, Akademie Verlag. ISSN 0942-2919. Central Paci²c is a low-level subgroup of Oceanic that consists of the Fijian languages, Rotuman, and the Polynesian languages. The focus of this special double issue of Language Typology and Universals is on the possessive constructions (and not just the possessive markers, in spite of the title) in these languages--in particular, on attributive possessive constructions, although some of the contributions also deal with predicate possession. A hallmark of the Oceanic group of languages is multiple systems of attributive possessive constructions, and the languages of the Central Paci²c subgroup are no exception, even though in the Polynesian languages and in Rotuman the original system has undergone some signi²cant alterations. The bulk of the articles deal with the possessive systems of individual languages such as Rotuman (Hans Schmidt) and a number of Polynesian languages: Tongan (Giovanni Bennardo), Niuean (Diane Massam and Wolfgang Sperlich), Tokelauan (Robin Hooper), Pileni (Åshild Næss), East Uvean (Claire Moyse-Faurie), Rapanui (Steven Fischer), Hawaiian (Kenneth Cook), and Mâori (Ray Harlow).
