Abstract

K. Alexander Adelaar. 2005. Salako or Badameà, sketch grammar, texts and lexicon of a Kanayatn dialect in West Borneo. Frankfurter Forschungen zu Südostasien 2. Berlin: Harrasowitz Verlag. vii + 328 pp. ISBN 3-447-051012-7. 78, hardcover. The Salako language, spoken in parts of West Kalimantan and Sarawak, is accepted as belonging to the Malayic family (Adelaar 1992a), but despite this linguistic af²liation, Salako speakers are culturally far removed from present-day Malay groups in Western Indonesia due to the preservation to their traditional lifestyle and religion until relatively recently. The Salako are, of course, not the only "Dayak" people of Kalimantan to be counted in the Malayic family; other such groups include the Iban and the Kendayan. But in contrast to the better-documented Iban language, Salako had not received suf²cient attention from linguists prior to Adelaar's earlier publications, especially in regard to grammar and morphology. The present grammar thus represents the ²rst attempt at offering a more holistic picture of the Salako language, and ²lls an important gap in our knowledge of the Malayic family and the linguistic landscape of West Kalimantan.
