Abstract:

The Iranian languages form the major eastern branch of the Indo-European
group of languages, itself part of the larger Indo-Iranian family.
Estimated to have between 150 and 200 million native speakers, the Iranian
languages constitute one of the world's major language families. This
comprehensive volume offers a detailed overview of the principle languages
which make up this group: Old Iranian, Middle Iranian, and New Iranian.

The Iranian Languages is divided into fifteen chapters. The introductory
chapters by the editor present a general overview and a detailed discussion
of the linguistic typology of Iranian. The individual chapters which follow
are written by leading experts in the field. These provide the reader with
concise, non-technical descriptions of a range of Iranian languages. Each
chapter follows the same pattern and sequence of topics, taking the reader
through the significant features not only of phonology and morphology but
also of syntax; from phrase level to complex sentences and pragmatics.

Ample examples on all levels are provided with detailed annotation for the
non-specialist reader. In addition, each chapter covers lexis,
sociolinguistic and typological issues, and concludes with annotated sample
texts.

This unique resource is the ideal companion for undergraduate and
postgraduate students of linguistics and language. It will also be of
interest to researchers or anyone with an interest in historical
linguistics, linguistics anthropology and language development.
