Dempwolff (1938) reconstructed ‘Uraustronesisch’ *taman ‘yard, courtyard’ (Hof), but there is little likelihood that any of these forms are related.

(Dempwolff: *SiRab)

yesterday

Formosan
Kavalan siRabyesterday
Paiwan si-tiav-anyesterday

The middle morpheme of Paiwan si-tiav-an shows a perfect formal and semantic match with Kavalan siRab, but the base form is Paiwan tiaw ‘day before or after today’, with regular morphophonemic alternation between -w (< *w) and v, which normally reflects only *b. Given this observation this comparison must be treated as a product of chance, despite its obvious appeal. Why it is so similar to PAn *siRa ‘yesterday’ is unclear.

Toba Batak adito rest

Chance. Dempwolff (1934-38) cited Toba Batak adi with the German gloss Ruhm ('glory, renown, fame'), but his source (Warneck 1906) actually gives adi 'ruhen' ('to rest').
