Comments on family membership

Tantalizing, but insufficient, parallels with Jarawa-Onge can be found in Blevins, Juliette 2007. Makuva [lva] of East Timor is also Austronesian (Engelenhoven, Aone van and Cailoru, Justino Valentim 2006). Utupua, Vanikoro and Reef-Santa Cruz have been shown to be bona fide Oceanic (Ross, Malcolm and Næss, Åshild 2007), (Næss, Åshild and Boerger, Brenda H. 2008), (François, Alexandre 2009). The arguments that Warembori, along with Yoke, is Austronesian are in fact convincing (Donohue, Mark 1999). Also, the best take on the poorly attested Kazukuru language(s) is that they were New Georgia Austronesian (Dunn, Michael and Ross, Malcolm 2007).
