Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Central-Eastern Malayo-Polynesian languages form a putative branch of the Nuclear Malayo-Polynesian languages consisting of over 700 languages. The relationship is moderately supported by linguistic data: analysis of the Austronesian Basic Vocabulary Database gives the proposal a confidence level of 80%. In fact, if Chamorro and Palauan are included, the confidence rises to 85%. However, Mark Donahue does not see CEMP as being particularly convincing, and suspects that it is a Sprachbund based on a non-Austronesian substrate.
