Abstract:

Introduction:
      
Siraya, Taivuan, and Makatau were Formosan languages formerly spoken in 
the southwestern plains of Taiwan. They all became extinct in the first half of 
the 19th century. Aside from Dutch missionary documents and short 
wordlists from that area, we have at our disposal a third type of language 
data, the so-called "Sinkang manuscripts," which were mostly contracts 
written in a roman alphabet. These texts were found in various villages in the 
southwestern plains that belong to the three different groups.
      
This volume is divided into three main parts. Part 1 contains all 101 of the 
Sinkang manuscripts that appeared in Murakami (1933). Part 2 contains a 
further 69 Sinkang manuscripts collected since then. And Part 3 consists of 
photocopies of all available Sinkang manuscripts, 150 in total. A map shows 
the geographical distribution of Siraya, Taivuan, and Makatau villages on the 
southwestern plains of Taiwan by the end of the 19th century. Appendix I is a 
list of Siraya names occurring in the manuscripts. This is basically a volume 
of transcribed texts with translation. Word-for-word interlinear English glosses 
and free Chinese translations are given for each text when possible. Only 34 
texts have free translations in both Chinese and English. This volume may be 
of interest of to linguists, anthropologists and historians.
