Landscape in Western Pantar, a Papuan outlier of southern Indonesia
This chapter describes the landscape, streamscape, and seascape terminology of Western Pantar, a non-Austronesian (“Papuan”) language spoken in the Alor archipelago of eastern Indonesia. In Western Pantar reference to elevations is achieved through named places of habitation rather than through generic landform terms; water bodies are denoted according to their quality rather than their form; and seascape terms reflect a focus on intertidal foraging and minimal use of open sea resources.
