Revisiting the position of Philippine languages in the Austronesian family


“Revisiting the position of Philippine languages in the Austronesian family” by Lawrence Reid, 18/02/2017, De La Salle University

Lecture organized by the Linguistic Society of the Philippines (LSP) and the Dept of English & Applied Linguistics (DEAL) of Br Andrew Gonzalez FSC College of Education (BAGCED), De La Salle University.

Each has been popular in his day, and each has been based on evidence that under scrutiny has been shown to have problems, leading to new claims. This presentation will examine the range of views from early Spanish ideas about the relationships of Philippine languages, to modern Bayesian phylogenetic views, outlining the data upon which the claims have been made and pointing out the problem that each has.
