Abstract:

South Asia is home to a large number of languages and dialects. The
considerable body of linguists working on this region have made significant
contributions to our understanding of language, society, and language in
society on a global scale. Despite this, there is as yet no recognized
international forum for the exchange of ideas amongst South Asian
linguists. The Yearbook of South Asian Languages and Linguistics is
designed to be just that forum. It brings together empirical and
theoretical research and serves as a testing ground for the articulation of
new ideas and approaches which may be grounded in a study of South Asian
languages but which have universal applicability. In the words of the
Editor-in-Chief, 'other than excellence and non-isolationism, we have no
agenda and no thematic priorities'. This pioneering series will interest
all those in the fields of sociolinguistics, language studies, grammar,
literature and sociology.
