WITH THIS IN MIND, THE LANGUAGE MATERIAL IN EACH VOLUME IS IN ROMAN SCRIPT, AND FULLY GLOSSED AND TRANSLATED. THE SERIES IS BASED AT THE SCHOOL OF ORIENTAL AND AFRICAN STUDIES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF LONDON, EUROPE'S LARGEST INSTITUTION SPECIALIZING IN THE STUDY OF THE LANGUAGES AND CULTURES OF AFRICA AND ASIA. EACH VOLUME IS WRITTEN BY AN ACKNOWLEDGED EXPERT IN THE FIELD WHO HAS CARRIED OUT ORIGINAL RESEARCH ON THE LANGUAGE AND HAS FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE OF THE AREA IN WHICH IT IS SPOKEN. NINETEEN VOLUMES HAVE SO FAR APPEARED IN THE SERIES.
