內容簡介


Prior to reading this book, I didn't fully grasp the breadth or depth of Li's research. After some cogitation it became clear to me that this was because my previous perception of linguistics was quite narrow. Much like many other sciences, the scope of modern linguistics has expanded outward to become all-embracing. It is now as much philosophic as it is scientific.
-Chang Kwang-chih, international authority on archeology

Over the past ten years the major significance of Formosan languages has come to be recognized by a number of specialized linguists of international repute. Formosan languages are the key to tracing the origins and early migration/dispersal of Austronesian peoples. Formosan languages also provide evidence crucial to the reconstruction of proto Austronesian culture. The four essays comprising the first section focus on the origins, migration and dispersal of Austronesians in Taiwan. Recognizing the significance of Taiwan's Austronesian languages, the task of preserving and developing these precious languages is paramount, they are disappearing fast. The six essays in the second section address this very issue.
