Title: Cover Annual Review of South Asian Languages and Linguistics
Subtitle: 2011
Edited By: Ghanshyam Sharma
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?isbn=9783110270570&sel=pi
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 241
Description:

South Asia is home to a large number of languages and dialects. Although
linguists working on this region have made significant contributions to our
understanding of language, society, and language in society on a global
scale, there is as yet no recognized international forum for the exchange of
ideas amongst linguists working on South Asia.

The Annual Review of South Asian Languages and Linguistics is designed to
be just that forum. It brings together empirical and theoretical research and
serves as a testing ground for the articulation of new ideas and approaches
which may be grounded in a study of South Asian languages but which have
universal applicability.

Each volume will have three major sections:

I. Invited contributions consisting of state-of-the-art essays on research in
South Asian languages.
II. Refereed open submissions focusing on relevant issues and providing
various viewpoints.
III. Reports from around the world, book reviews and abstracts of doctoral
theses.
