The First Glot International State-of-the-Article book is a collection
of overview articles which have previously been published in Glot
International. They have been revised and updated, in which process
special attention was given to the extensive bibliography, which
constitutes an im-portant part of each overview article.

The articles offer an overview of the major developments of the past
ten, fifteen years in a number sub-areas of linguistics. What were the
main problems two decades ago? How has one gone about solving them? What
solutions have been proposed? Which of these has survived till the
present? What are the outstanding issues?
