The research team's computational model uses probabilistic reasoning - that explores logic and statistics to predict an outcome - to reconstruct more than 600 Proto-Austronesian languages from an existing database of more than 140,000 words, replicating with 85 percent accuracy what linguists had done manually.

Linguists such as Mark Donohue and others have launched major assaults on the model in recent years, proposing a trajectory from Proto-Austronesian to Proto-Malayo-Polynesian (PMP) to Eastern Malayo-Polynesian (EMP) to Proto-Oceanic (PO) (Donohue & Grimes 2008; Klamer et al 2008; Donohue & Denham 2010; see Figure 2).
