The World of Linguistics

Ed. by Hock, Hans Henrich



    Aims and Scope

    The handbook series The World of Linguistics provides an up-to-date overview of linguistic work on the world's languages. The volumes cover the entire world divided into major geographical areas: Africa, Europe, North and Central America, South America, Central and Northern Asia, South Asia, East and Southeast Asia, Western Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. Each volume is written and edited by leading scholars on the languages and linguistics of the relevant area. In addition to linguistic classification, contact-induced areal phenomena are also discussed, as well as work in different disciplines, such as syntax, morphology, phonology, sociolinguistics, and computational linguistics. The aim is to present not only the major achievements in linguistic research in each geographical area, but also topics that are controversial or under-researched. The handbooks also provide extensive bibliographical information on major publications and databases that will enable the reader to delve further into the subject area. The World of Linguistics will remain an indispensable companion to the general linguist as well as the specialist for years to come.
