Linguistics of the Tibeto-Burman Area is a peer-reviewed (refereed) journal devoted to the synchronic and diachronic study of the languages of mainland Southeast Asia, the Indo-Burma region, the Tibetan Plateau and the Himalayas, with a special focus on the vast and ramified Tibeto-Burman family. In addition to Tibeto-Burman, articles have appeared on languages belonging to all the major linguistic families of this great expanse of Asia, including Austroasiatic, Hmong-Mien, Indo-Aryan and Tai-Kadai.
LTBA was founded in 1974 and has been in continuous publication ever since, attracting contributions from many of the leading scholars in the field. The journal invites submissions of high quality papers dealing with any aspect of morphology and syntax, phonetics and phonology, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, genetic classification, lexicography, language documentation and language maintenance. Submissions that address matters of theoretical interest richly supported by empirical data are particularly welcomed.
The journal publishes two issues per year containing original articles, book reviews, review articles, discussions, conference reports, and announcements.
John Benjamins Publishing Company is the official publisher as of Volume 37 (2014).
