Woollams, Geoffrey D. (2005) Karo Batak. In Adelaar, K. Alexander & Himmelmann, Nikolaus (Eds.) The Austronesian languages of Asia and Madagascar. Routledge, London ; New York, pp. 534-561.
Some 800 Austronesian languages are spoken in the area extending from Madagascar to eastern Indonesia and, to the north, to Taiwan and the Philippines. They vary greatly in almost every possible respect, including the size and social make-up of the speech communities and their typological profiles. This book is designed to serve as a reference work and in-depth introduction to these languages, providing a source of basic information for linguists and other professionals concerned with this area.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
