This paper intends to explain two issues, the Proto-Austronesian reflex (PAN) into Buru language (Br) and its correspondence with Collins's (1981) view. A PAN top-down approach reconstructed by Blust and Trussel (2015) is employed to see the realization in Buru. The data that have been collected using direct interview are 200 basic vocabulary revised by Blust (1980) and approximately 800 cultural vocabularies. The results identify that (1) Buru speech sounds that tend to innovate from PAN, ie * k, * b, * q, * h, * S, * C, * d , * z, * ay, and * uy; (2) Buru speech sounds that tend to retain, ie * p, * t, * g, * Å‹, * m, * w, * s, * r, * l, * a, * u, * i, * Ç ; (3) not found PAN * t that change to / f / in Buru as proof of unity with Sula and Taliabo as well as proof of separation with Ambelau language. PAN * t in the initial and middle position only changes to / t /, / n /, and / Ãµ /.
