Roger Green the Linguist

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Although best known for his archaeological work Roger Green also made important contributions to Oceanic historical linguistics Among his 300 or so publications about 15 focus on linguistic issues, while many others treat these to a greater or lesser degree. Roger's linguistic contributions were of two main kinds. First, he planned and directed multidisciplinary projects in which historical linguistic research was one major strand. Second, he wrote a number of substantial papers and a major book dealing with Oceanic (chiefly Polynesian) historical linguistics and what this tells us about Oceanic culture history.
