The Tervuren Series for African Language Documentation and Description is a
new series which intends to publish scientifically high quality books that
contribute to both the description and documentation of hitherto poorly or
non-described African languages. It aims at publications which do not fit
the format of a research article. It welcomes not only lexical and
grammatical descriptions of variable length (lexicons, dictionaries,
full-fledged grammars, grammatical sketches), but also annotated text
materials in African languages.

As an important centre of research and knowledge dissemination on Africa,
the Royal Museum for Central Africa (Tervuren, Belgium) wishes to play an
important role in raising awareness about Africa’s linguistic diversity and
the conservation of its intangible cultural heritage. In this regard, the
"Tervuren Series for African Language Documentation and Description" is
launched as an important vehicle for the diffusion of knowledge on African
languages. It will be complementary to Africana Linguistica, the RMCA's
journal of African linguistics.

In harmony with the editorial policy of the RMCA, all contributions to the
new series will be peer-reviewed. Contributions can be in English or French
and should be submitted, both electronically and in hard copy to:


Publications Service
Leuvensesteenweg 13
3080 Tervuren
