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.
