Subfamily: East Timor-Bunaq

Classification

Comments on family membership

The group is clearly internally coherent. I have not been able to replicate the lexicostatistic argument for a relation between all Timor-Alor-Pantar languages, i.e. with West Timor-Alor-Pantar and Kolana-Tanglapui 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. Likewise, the Bomberai/Alor comparisons in Hull, Geoffrey 2004 are flimsy.
