Leti: language of Southwest Maluku
"Leti is spoken on the island with the same name near the Indonesian-East Timorese border. This small Austronesian language is known among linguists for the complex patterns of metathesis permeating its entire grammar. This book provides information on previously undescribed features of the Leti language, such as singing, naming, storytelling, and the semantics of the indexer clitic. A complete version of the ""Sailfish Myth"" that underlies the structures of all Southwest Malukan island communities is included. The entire text is provided with interlinear glosses and all lexical items in the text and in the description have been inserted in a word list together with all lexical parallels. As the first exhaustive study of a Southwest Malukan language, this description is a valuable contribution to the typological study of East Indonesia and East Timor and to Austronesian linguistics."
