"This is the first of a set of five volumes bringing together the results of recent work on the lexicon of the Proto Oceanic (POc) language. Volume 1 deals with material culture, volume 2 with the physical world including landscape and conceptions of location, meteorology, astronomy and time, volume 3 with flora and fauna, volume 4 with terminologies centring on human beings, including the body and basic human conditions and activities, and social organisation, and volume 5 with grammatical (closed) categories including adjectives, pronouns, and number. Volume 5, as it is planned at the time of this writing, will also include an index to the POc and other reconstructions presented in the whole work, as well as an English-to-POc finderlist and a list of all languages cited, together with their subgroups." -- v. 1, p.
