South Asia is home to a large number of languages and dialects. The considerable body of linguists working on this region have made significant contributions to our understanding of language, society, and language in society on a global scale. Despite this, there is as yet no recognized international forum for the exchange of ideas amongst South Asian linguists. The YEARBOOK 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 of this annual series will have four 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.
IV. A forum for dialogue; critiques; comments and discussions; reports on research activities; and conference announcements.
In the words of the Editor-in-Chief, 'other than excellence and non-isolationism, we have no agenda and no thematic priorities'. This pioneering series will interest all those in the fields of sociolinguistics, language studies, grammar, literature and sociology.
