Present-day Dialectology does not treat dialectology as an isolated
discipline. Instead, it discusses dialectological topics within the
framework of present-day linguistics. The book contains papers which
seek to confront recent phonological, morphologic, syntactic and
semantic theory with dialectological data. In addition, it explores
the link between dialectology on the one hand and sociolinguistics and
the study of language contact on the other. Therefore, this study is
not only of interest to dialectologists, but also to sociolinguists,
students of language contact as well as theoretical linguists in

Trends in Linguistics.
Studies and Monographs (TiLSM)

Edited by Werner Winter and Walter Bisang

The world's languages are characterized by a wealth of divergent
structural properties for which different schools try to provide a
variety of rather divergent explanations. Trends in Linguistics tries
to adopt a maximally integrative policy by providing a forum for
promising contributions to a better understanding of how languages
work and what keeps them together.

Proposals from the formal and from the functional perspectives are
equally welcome as original approaches which try to go new ways and
may become mainstream in the future. Since successful linguistic
theories depend on the insightful analysis of substantial corpora of
linguistic material, Trends in Linguistics is also particularly
interested in publishing solid descriptions of languages from the
present as well as from the past which may provide stimulating input
to the theoretical discussion. As fields of study, languages of wide
distribution and those spoken by very small communities are of equal
importance. Indeed, the fact that a language is on the verge of
extinction makes data collection and interpretation a particularly
urgent concern.

Trends in Linguistics is divided into two subseries. In the
Documentation subseries, presentation of data takes precedence; in the
Studies and Monographs series, both basically theoretical problems and
problems derived from, and supported by, work with large collections
of materials are included. Given the broad theoretical profile of the
series, it can offer a place of publication for monographs and
thematically organized collective volumes of interest to a wide
cross-section of the community of linguists.
