Title: Circum-Baltic Languages
Subtitle: Volume 2: Grammar and Typology
Edited By: Östen Dahl
Maria Koptjevskaja Tamm
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 55
Description:

The area around the Baltic Sea has for millennia been a meeting-place for people of different origin. Among the circum-Baltic languages, we find three major branches of Indo-European -- Baltic, Germanic, and Slavic, the
Baltic-Finnic languages from the Uralic phylum and several others. The circum-Baltic area is an ideal place to study areal and contact phenomena in languages.

The present set of two volumes look at the circum-Baltic languages from a typological, areal and historical perspective, trying to relate the intricate patterns of similarities and dissimilarities to the societal background.

In volume I, surveys of dialect areas and language groups bear witness to the immense linguistic diversity in the area with special attention to less well-known languages and language varieties and their contacts.

In volume II, selected phenomena in the grammars of the circum-Baltic languages are studied in a cross-linguistic perspective.
