The Semit­ic lan­guagesBuchcover
The Semit­ic Lan­guages presents a com­pre­hen­sive sur­vey of the indi­vid­ual lan­guages and lan­guage clus­ters with­in this lan­guage fam­i­ly, from their ori­gins in antiq­ui­ty to their present-day forms.
This sec­ond edi­tion has been ful­ly revised, with new chap­ters and a wealth of addi­tion­al mate­r­i­al. New fea­tures include the fol­low­ing:
— new intro­duc­to­ry chap­ters on Pro­to-Semit­ic gram­mar and Semit­ic lin­guis­tic typol­o­gy
— an addi­tion­al chap­ter on the place of Semit­ic as a sub­group of Afro-Asi­at­ic, and sev­er­al chap­ters on mod­ern forms of Ara­bic, Ara­ma­ic and Ethiopi­an Semit­ic
— text sam­ples of each indi­vid­ual lan­guage, tran­scribed into the Inter­na­tion­al Pho­net­ic Alpha­bet, with stan­dard lin­guis­tic word-by-word gloss­ing as well as trans­la­tion
— new maps and tables present infor­ma­tion visu­al­ly for easy ref­er­ence.
This unique resource is the ide­al ref­er­ence for advanced under­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate stu­dents of lin­guis­tics and lan­guage. It will be of inter­est to researchers and any­one with an inter­est in his­tor­i­cal lin­guis­tics, lin­guis­tic typol­o­gy, lin­guis­tic anthro­pol­o­gy and lan­guage devel­op­ment.

Chi­nese lin­guis­tics: an intro­duc­tionBuchcover
Chi­nese lin­guis­tics, broad­ly under­stood as the sci­en­tif­ic study of Sinitic lan­guages and oth­er lan­guages of Chi­na, may be regard­ed both as an estab­lished and as an emerg­ing sub­field of lin­guis­tics and Chi­nese stud­ies. The Chi­nese tra­di­tion of reflec­tion on lan­guage and writ­ing began even before the Impe­r­i­al Age in Chi­na, and for­eign schol­ars, often mis­sion­ar­ies from the West, start­ed writ­ing gram­mars and treaties on Sinitic lan­guages at least since the six­teenth cen­tu­ry. On the oth­er hand, the field has expe­ri­enced momen­tous devel­op­ment in the past thir­ty years, and per­haps even more strong­ly since the begin­ning of the third mil­len­ni­um: the past decade has wit­nessed a steady growth of con­fer­ences, jour­nals, cours­es, and pub­li­ca­tions specif­i­cal­ly ded­i­cat­ed to Chi­nese, as well as a tremen­dous rise in the num­ber of lan­guage stu­dents and teach­ers all over the world. How­ev­er, an up-to-date intro­duc­to­ry book on Chi­nese lin­guis­tics for a West­ern audi­ence is not easy to find. The present vol­ume aims at fill­ing this gap, pro­vid­ing an acces­si­ble gen­er­al intro­duc­tion to key top­ics in Chi­nese lin­guis­tics both for Chi­na schol­ars and for lin­guists, includ­ing those with lit­tle or no pre­vi­ous knowl­edge of Chi­nese.
