This is a personal tribute to Sam Elbert, who was my chief mentor in the field of diachronic Austronesian linguistics (along with my father, who taught me Indo-European diachronics when I was thirteen). I could never have done it without Sam's inspiration, his brilliant example, and his unflagging encouragement.
