Институт востоковедения РАН

Москва, 2015, 168 p.

The aim of this monograph is to give a general description of Austronesian languages represented by several major groups, each corresponding to its own structural type. The first, introductory part of the book is devoted to the principles of description of the South-East Asian languages. It also relates the history of the study of Malay (Indonesian) language in Russia, which began in 1945. The second part describes the Malay, Philippine, East Indonesian, and Oceanic types of languages. Languages of the islands of Sulawesi, Kalimantan, Madagascar are not covered, because they do not represent the major group types. The features of the Austronesian family are contrasted with the peculiarities of the Indo-Chinese type notable for its structural differences. The author also raises and examines the issue of the “language union” in Indo-China. In the third part, the researcher analyses and summarizes the properties and peculiarities of Austronesian languages as a separate family on the linguistic map of the world. The book ends with general tables showing the structural features of the languages under study. The investigation is the first of its kind in Austronesian linguistics. The monograph by N.F. Aliyeva will undoubtedly be of great importance for typological and areal research.
