 Abstract:
 
 Every five years the Permanent International Committee of Linguists (CIPL)
 organises a world congress for linguists. And every five years the
 Committee faces the challenge of presenting a programme at the highest
 possible level. The CIPL Executive Committee decided for the Congress
 planned for 2003 in Prague to focus on four major topics which play an
 important role in today's linguistic debate: 1. Typology, 2. Endangered
 Languages, 3. Methodology and Linguistics (including fieldwork) and 4.
 Language and the mind. Leading experts have introduced the four themes in
 their plenary lectures in the course of the congress, which served as a
 basis for the articles presented in the current volume. This book should be
 a welcome tool for all linguists wishing to find their way quickly in
 current developments.
