Subfamily: Alor-Pantar

Classification

Comments on family membership

I have not been able to replicate the lexicostatistic argument for a relation between all Timor-Alor-Pantar languages, i.e. with East Timor W. A. L. Stokhof 1975 , and the correspondes adduced in Antoinette Schapper and Juliette Huber and Aone van Engelenhoven 2012 are suggestive but so far too few to conclude a relationship. The lexical and pronominal evidence for a Trans New Guinea affiliation is much too weak Andrew Pawley 1998 :683 , Holton, Gary and Marian Klamer and František Kratochvíl and Laura Robinson and Antoinette Schapper 2012 , cf. Andrew Pawley 2005 :94-95 . The newest comparison of cognates František Kratochvíl 2007 :6-11 cannot muster a strong case (correspondences are few, weak and not systematic enough).
