About this Item

216 pp., bibliography. This is a commemorative volume for the late David John (Jack) Prentice (1942-1995). Jack Prentice was a linguist who published on Timugon Murut (Sabah, Borneo ) and on various forms of Malay and Indonesian. This book contains papers on the grammatical structure of Salako, Murut, Lundayeh (Borneo), Southwest Maluku Malay (East Indonesia) and Inanwatan ( West Papua ). It also contains papers on the phonological histories of Kayan (Borneo) and Kerinci ( Sumatra ). Other papers concern loanwords in Ambon Malay and loan-translations in Indonesian. One contribution discusses Sarawak Malay in its ecological context and another discusses a Wehèa Modang epic story ( Borneo ). Finally, there is also a discussion of possessive versus qualitative attributive constructions in Indonesian. In many ways, this book is a reflection of the various interests Jack had during his life, and also of the inspiration he gave to his friends and fellow linguists, especially those working on languages in Borneo and on Malay. 0.0.
