The distinct traits shared by the Semitic languages determine the essential unity of research in these languages. Studies in Semitic Languages and Linguistics has been a prominent forum for linguistic publications concerning the Semitic languages ever since its foundation in 1967.

The series includes both books written in the philological tradition of research and ones applying modern linguistic theories. Such sub-disciplines as descriptive linguistics, comparative linguistics, socio-linguistics et cetera all fall within the scope of the series. While studies of individual aspects of individual languages are accepted on a selective basis, the series specifically includes monographs, collaborative volumes, and reference works of a wider scope.

The goal of the series is to provide a widely read and respected international forum for high quality theoretical, analytical, and applied pragmatic studies of all types. By publishing leading edge work on natural language practice, it seeks to extend our growing knowledge of the forms, functions, and foundations of human interaction.

The series published an average of five volumes per year over the last 5 years.

Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd'hui

An Annual Bilingual Review / Revue Annuelle Bilingue

Since 2016, Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd’hui is published as a journal. See on Brill's journal page:

The issues of the book series remain available here.

A refereed bilingual book series, Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd’hui has established itself as one of the leading international series in the dynamic field of Beckett studies. A guiding principle of the journal is its openness to diverse disciplinary domains, theoretical perspectives, and discourse styles of scholars writing on Beckett. Bilingual since its inception, it aims to foster dialogue across languages, cultures, and disciplines. The series welcomes submissions in English and French from all parts of the world provided they contribute a new understanding to the extensive literature on Beckett and meet the tests of readability and scholarship. SBT\A accepts submissions of individual articles at any moment, and publishes these on a regular basis twice a year after peer-reviewing. Proposals for thematic issues, whether based on conferences or not, are welcome; articles in these dossiers are peer-reviewed according to the same procedure as individual articles. Free space (for accepted individual articles that have been accepted for publication) is available in each issue.

La collection bilingue Samuel Beckett Today / Aujourd’hui a su se faire reconnaître comme une des collections internationales de pointe dans le domaine très dynamique des études beckettiennes. L’un des principes directeurs de cette revue est son ouverture à la diversité des champs d’étude, des perspectives théoriques et des approches stylistiques des chercheurs travaillant sur Beckett. Bilingue depuis sa fondation, la collection cherche à encourager le dialogue entre les langues, les cultures et les disciplines différentes. La collection accueille des propositions en anglais et en français provenant de tous les coins du monde, pourvu que celles-ci, en s’inscrivant dans la liste déjà longue des études sur Beckett, contribuent à apporter une compréhension nouvelle de cette œuvre, tout en répondant aux critères requis de lisibilité et de sérieux scientifique. Les propositions sont soumises au contrôle évaluatif par les pairs.
This new peer-reviewed book series focuses on the study of language contact, language use and language change in accordance with a view of language contact whereby both empirical data (the precise description of languages and how they are used) and the resulting theoretical elaborations (hence the statement and analysis of new problems) become the primary engines for advancing our understanding of the nature of language and the dynamics of language change. This involves linguistic, anthropological, sociological, historical, and cognitive factors, but also a potentially critical approach to the methods used for the study of the phenomena. Such an approach makes a major new contribution to the understanding of language change and the dynamics of language at a time when there is a notable increase in interest and activity in this field and where a continual reshaping of theoretical approaches is apparent. This implies particular attention to the epistemological frameworks that reshape the requirements for knowledge in this field. The series will publish monographs as well as edited volumes and conference proceedings centered around a coherent theme.

The series has published one volume since 2014.

Brill’s Studies in Historical Linguistics, (BSHL) is an international series aiming to publish studies that bring the field of historical linguistics forward methodologically, empirically, theoretically, or all of the above. Volumes published in this series will represent original research at the highest intellectual level, intended for disseminating genuine and innovative contributions to the field, from all theoretical frameworks and scholarly persuasions alike. The studies may be confined to a linguistic phenomenon in the history of one language or be comparative. They may be from any area of historical linguistics, provided that they show a progress from the state-of-the-art.

The series has published an average of 1,5 volumes per year since 2013.
Brill’s Studies in Language, Cognition and Culture (BSLC) is a peer-reviewed book series that offers an international forum for high-quality original studies in languages and cultures. It focuses on the interaction between linguistic categories (and their conceptualization), cultural values, and human cognition. Publications in this series will include interdisciplinary studies on language, its meanings and forms, and possible interactions with cognitive and communicational patterns. The series spans cultural and social anthropology, cognitive science and linguistics. The emphasis is on inductive based cross-linguistic and cross-cultural studies, with special attention to poorly known areas, such as Lowland Amazonia and the Pacific. The series is international in scope.

PALA Papers is a series of volumes that comprises essays selected and edited from presentations at the annual conferences of the Poetics and Linguistics Association, an international body of scholars whose work focuses on the interdisciplinary nexus of linguistics, discourse theory, and literary analysis, criticism, and theory. Each volume will present studies that provide models to scholars throughout the world for conducting their own research in this multidisciplinary paradigm on such topics as, among many others, close linguistic analysis of canonical literary works, corpus-based studies of literary narrative, and the linguistic basis of contemporary social and cultural theory.
