Comparative Tai Source Book

William J. Gedney’s Comparative Tai Source Book, by Thomas John Hudak, provides accurate and reliable data from 1,159 common cognates found in 19 dialects from the Tai language family. Originally collected by noted Tai linguist, the late William J. Gedney, the data are organized into the three branches of the Tai language family, the Southwestern, the Central, and the Northern, to facilitate comparisons among the various sound systems within the individual branches and within the Tai language family as a whole.

This is the latest volume (number 34) in the Oceanic Linguistics Special Publication series.
