Futunan kalu-matathe whites of the eyes

This is an example of the extreme lengths Dempwolff (1938) sometimes went to in order to force a comparison semantically when the sound correspondences permitted the reconstruction of a phonemic form. He glossed the Javanese form ‘maize without kernels’, but that is not the gloss in Horne (1974), and I am unable to find the form at all in Pigeaud (1938). Similarly, Futunan kalu-mata does not appear in Moyse-Faurie (1993), and even if it did the semantic distance between this and Tagalog kalót is so great as to render any comparison too speculative to take seriously.

(Dempwolff: *lali ‘unnoticed, not perceived’)

unnoticed:   unnoticed, not perceived

WMP
Malay laliinsensitive to pain or emotion, of soldiers reckless of danger
Old Javanese lalito forget, fail to notice

Probably a chance resemblance. Dempwolff (1938) positied Uraustronesisch *lali ‘unnoticed, not perceived’ (Unbemerktsein).
