The book is devoted to linguistic and phonetic analysis of some undescribed
and endangered languages. It collects the Proceedings of the international
conference on “Undescribed and endangered languages: the preservation of
linguistic diversity” held in University of Tuscia (Viterbo, Italy), on
September 29, 2005. Papers are by Roberto Ajello (Pisa), Amedeo De
Dominicis (Viterbo), Maurizio Gnerre (Napoli), Antonino Melis (N’Djamena).
It will appeal to linguists, phoneticians and phonologists as a
contribution to the debate it discusses and it will be welcomed by a wide
range of students and researchers as an ideal overview of recent works.
