For the first time, aspects of the morphology and syntax of Oceanic languages such as the encoding of sentence types, the structure of the noun phrase, noun incorporation, constituent order, and ergative vs. accusative alignment are discussed from a comparative point of view, thus drawing attention to genetic, areal and language-specific features. The individual papers are based on the field work of the authors on lesser-described and endangered languages and are basically descriptive studies. At the same time they also explore the theoretical implications of the data presented and analyzed, as well as the historical development of certain morpho-syntactic phenomena, without basing these explorations on a single theoretical framework.Introduction / Moyse-Faurie, Claire, Sabel, Joachim (p.1-24) -- Deriving linear order in OV/VO languages: evidence from Oceanic languages / Sabel, Joachim (p.27-64) -- Questions and answers in Niuean / Massam, Diane, Starks, Donna, Ikiua, Ofania (p.65-106) -- Questions and word order in Polynesian / Potsdam, Eric, Polinsky, Maria (p.107-133) -- Nominalization and exclamation in Oceanic languages / Moyse-Faurie, Claire (p.135-160) -- Two or three things in the Unua noun phrase / Pearce, Elizabeth (p.163-202) -- Noun incorporation in Saliba / Margetts, Anna (p.203-234) -- Noun-phrase conjunction in Austronesian languages: additive, inclusory and comitative strategies / Bril, Isabelle (p.235-286) -- Neither accusative nor ergative: an alternative analysis of case in Eastern Polynesian / Otsuka, Yuko (p.289-317) -- Grammaticalization of Tahitian mea ‘thing, matter’ into a stative aspect / Vernaudon, Jacques (p.319-339) Sujet RAMEAU: Langues océaniennes Sujet géographique RAMEAU: Océanie Langues Thématique: Etude descriptive | Linguistique, languesThématique spécifique: Syntaxe | Typologie | Morphologie (linguistique) | GrammaireLangue: Niue | Saliba [sbe] | Unua | Oceanic | Tahitian | Austronesian | PolynesianType de document: OuvrageLangue du document: anglaisPays d'édition: Allemagne, Etats-Unis d'Amériques
