Dear Austronesianists,

We would like to draw your attention to a new publication dealing with number and quantify in languages of Eastern Indonesia:

Title: Number and quantity in East Nusantara: papers from 12-ICAL, Volume 1
Editors: Marian Klamer and František Kratochvíl
Publisher: Asia-Pacific Linguistics (

This volume showcases the expression of number and quantity in a dozen minority languages spoken in Eastern Indonesia. While several papers offer a typological and comparative perspective, most contributions provide detailed descriptions of the numeral systems, universal quantifiers, classifiers, and the expression of nominal and verbal number in individual languages. Languages featuring in this volume include the Austronesian languages Sumbawa, Tolaki, Helong, Uab Meto, and Papuan Malay; the Timor-Alor-Pantar languages Abui, Bunaq, Kamang, Makalero, Sawila, and Western Pantar, and the West-Papuan language Tobelo.

The entire book is freely available for download under the Creative Commons license from the following website:

With kind regards,

František and Marian
