ABOUT SEALANG-LJUBA

SEALANG-L is a non-moderated mailing list originally founded
by Gwyn Williams and Trin Tantsetthi in 1994, and devoted to
scholarly discussion relevant to Southeast Asian languages. The
core SEA languages belong to five major families: Austronesian
(AN); Mon-Khmer (Austro-Asiatic; AA, including Munda); Tai-Kadai
(TK); Tibeto-Burman (TB; a branch of Sino-Tibetan ST); and
Hmong-Mien (HM; also known as Miao-Yao). SEALANG-L interests
also extend to languages of the Sino-Tibetan family, as well as
the Austronesian family, spoken in Vietnam and Cambodia,
Malaysia, Philippines, Brunei, Indonesia, Java, and the
Micronesian, Melanesian, Polynesian, and Madagascar regions.

Languages of historical importance, particularly Pali and
Sanskrit, and more recent European languages (eg. English) are
included in the discussion to the extent to which they bear on
SEA.
