A research by Dhani Irwanto, 16 January The Austronesian language family stretches halfway around the world, covering a wide geographic area from Madagascar to Easter Island, and from Taiwan and Hawai to New Zealand.

The family includes most of the languages spoken on the islands of the Pacific with the exception of the indigenous. Some Austronesian languages are spoken in the area extending from Madagascar to eastern Indonesia and to the north to Taiwan and the Philippines.

The Austronesian language family includes between 1, and 1, languages, which represents around one fifth of the languages spoken in the world.

20% of the languages in the world are spoken by less than 4,5% of the population It is the second family in terms of number of languages, right behind the Niger-Congo family (Africa). The Austronesian comparative dictionary (ACD) is an open-access online resource that currently (June ) includes 4, sets of reconstructions for nine hierarchically ordered protolanguages.

THE languages known as Austronesian are spoken by more than million people in territories that include Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Madagascar and. It is a fact that nobody can tell for sure, where the Austronesian languages originated.

Some scholars are of the opinion that this language originated in the country of Taiwan, while other scholars believe that the Austronesian language originated in the country of Indonesia. This language is spoken by a huge number of people around the globe.

Overview. Austronesian is the largest language family in the world with about languages, representing one-fifth of the world's total. Its million speakers are spread across an enormous territory ranging from Madagascar in the west to Eastern Island in the east and from Hawaii in the north to New Zealand in the south, including peninsular and insular Southeast Asia, most of the islands.

Austronesian languages have long raised fascinating questions for generative theories of syntax and morphology. The papers in this amount embody a couple of of those typical questions and place them in newer theoretical contexts.

Presentation [] For further information, including the full final version of the list, read the Wikipedia article: Swadesh list. American linguist Morris Swadesh believed that languages changed at measurable rates and that these could be determined even for languages without written precursors.

Using vocabulary lists, he sought to understand not only change over time but also the relationships. A hypothesis that the phonetics and phonology of a language have been shaped by the hearing status of the speakers is not easily falsifiable, but we can at least identify two major types of prima facie counter-evidence that would be a problem for such a hypothesis: firstly, evidence that the cause of the hearing impairment had not existed in the population for long enough for it to have had.

My next paper is on the reconstruction of Proto-Segai-Modang, a Bornean subgroup that is best known as containing languages with a Mainland Southeast Asian phonological typology of large vowel inventories, di- and triphthongs, a sesqui- or monosyllabic word structure, and an overall dramatic departure from typical Austronesian phonology.Anthropologists believe that Austronesian speakers began migrating from their homeland in Southeast Asia about 3, or 4, years ago, and went on to settle almost all of the Pacific islands.

Despite the huge geographical expanse they occupy, the Austronesian languages are remarkably similar.Austronesian (ôs'trōnē`zhən, –shən), name sometimes used for the Malayo-Polynesian languages Malayo-Polynesian languages, sometimes also called Austronesian languages, family of languages estimated at from to tongues and understood by approximately million people in Madagascar; the Malay Peninsula; Indonesia and New Guinea; the Philippines.
