dc.description.abstractThis thesis will attempt to classify the languages of Kotawaringin Barat, Kalimantan Tengah, Indonesia using comparative analysis and dialectology. Comparison will be made with Proto-Malayic and other comparative dialectal studies to determine if the KoBar languages are autochthonous to Borneo or part of a back-migration of Malay languages from outside Borneo. If they are autochthonous, then I will seek to place them in the network of Malayic dialects based on phonological changes. Finally, the internal relationships of the languages will be determined based on sound changes. It is my hope that this paper will move forward the study of Malayic languages on Borneo.
