Title: Aspects of Iranian Linguistics
Edited By: Simin Karimi
Vida Samiian
Donald Stilo
Description:

Aspects of Iranian Linguistics introduces readers to recent research into
various properties of a number of Iranian languages. The volume consists of
twenty chapters that cover a full range of Iranian linguistics, including
formal theoretical perspectives (from a syntactic and morphological point
of view), typological and functional perspectives, and diachronic and areal
perspectives. It also contains papers on computational linguistics and
neurolinguistics, as well as the modern history of lexicography in Iran.
Various Iranian languages are discussed in this volume, including Hawrami
and Kermanji, two of the major dialects of Kurdish, Medival, Classical and
Modern Persian, Balochi, Taleshi and Pamir. With the exception of
Persian, other Iranian languages had not received much attention in the
past. Thus this work, as the first volume ever published on various aspects
of these languages and their linguistic properties, is a valuable
contribution to our understanding of a less commonly studied language
family. The theoretical, descriptive, and applied approaches pursued by
various authors in this volume, together with the colorful range of
languages discussed, provide a unique perspective that is appealing to
researchers in different domains of linguistics and language studies.
