Based on the Palauan-English dictionary by Fr. Edwin G. McManus, S.J. (UH Press, 1977), this revision is designed to be an easily accessible reference for identifying vocabulary items of Palauan, which are often culture bound, semantically rich, and structurally quite complex. Thousands of Palauan entries are new or greatly expanded. Users will benefit from a much wider range of vocabulary, especially in the areas of flora and fauna, Palauan legend, and borrowed words from both English and Japanese. The expanded English-Palauan finder list allows for quick reference to the Palauan equivalents of many English words.

In 1783 an East India Company packet, the Antelope, was wrecked on the Pelew Islands (in modern Micronesia). Captain Henry Wilson and his crew developed unusually amicable relations with the Palauan inhabitants and participated in expeditions against their enemies. After a stay of just over three months, they departed in a new vessel they had built, taking the 'prince' Lee Boo with them to Britain. Lee Boo was a figure of fashionable interest in London, at once highly regarded for his intelligence, yet treated also as an exotic curiosity. His death from smallpox in 1784 occasioned wide regretful comment. An Account of the Pelew Islands, which relates these events, was written by George Keate, a professional author, and is based on extensive interviews with Captain Wilson, Lee Boo and other participants. Its dramatic and well-written narrative made it one of the most popular late-eighteenth-century travel books and it was rapidly translated into several European languages and republished in five London editions up to 1803. This new edition of the work reproduces the text of the fifth edition, noting the changes from earlier editions. It includes introductory essays on the significance of the text or late-eighteenth-century European culture and on the Micronesian dimensions of the voyage and the book. Annotations explain and contextualize points of historical and ethnographic significance and the original fine engraved portraits, views, artifacts and charts are included, as well as previously unpublished plates and clear new maps.

Comparative Grammar and Typology

The comparative grammar of the Austronesian languages underwent an unprecedented change immediately after World War 2, owing to the use of lexicostatistics, the appeal to migration theory and the like, and also because of the idea of Formosa being the cradle of the language family. The present book is essentially an attempt at answering the following question: What would the comparative grammar of Austronesian look like in the absence of speculation on speaker migrations, and in the absence of the so-called "data" produced by lexicostatistics and glottochronology? Whereas typology is unable to offer the proof that a given language belongs to a group or subgroup of languages, grammaticalization theory can say whether a given state A may have preceded a state B or the reverse, and solid arguments are needed to propose a relative chronology between events that would be improbable, or even exceptional, in terms of the typology of linguistic change. This book revisits central issues of the comparative grammar of Austronesian languages from this angle, such as the history of person markers, particularly in the 2nd person, the genesis of the so-called "focus" verbal voice system and the typology of sentence structures. There is nothing in these domains that supports the supposition that Proto-Austronesian was very similar to the Formosan languages.

Micronesia is home to less than 500,000 people, all coming from a variety of backgrounds due to its many islands being scattered over a large area of the Pacific Ocean. This bibliography provides over 700 citations, representing a cross-section of the available literature on the subject.
