The series will be of interest to anybody interested in questions of cosmopolitan and vernacular in the Sinographic Cosmopolis—specifically, with respect to questions of language, writing and literary culture, embracing both beginnings (the origins of and early sources for writing in the sinographic sphere) and endings (the disintegration of the Sinographic Cosmopolis in places like Korea, Japan and Vietnam, and the advent of linguistic modernity throughout all of the old Sinitic sphere. In addition, the series will feature comparative research on interactions and synergies in language, writing and literary culture in the Sinographic Cosmopolis over nearly two millennia, as well as studies of the 'sinographic hangover' in modern East Asia-critical and comparative assessments of the social and cultural history of language and writing and linguistic thought in modern and premodern East Asia.

Romance languages have come to play a central role within general linguistics over the last years. Many minor varieties have attracted the interest of scholars, and this has led to the proliferation of articles and books on Romance. While the understanding of various phenomena in the Romance languages has seen many advances, the documentation side has slowed down significantly. Minor Romance languages are less and less documented, both because of a lack of funds and because they are steadily being replaced by standard languages. Those linguists that still dedicate time and effort towards documenting and describing non-standard Romance varieties are often unable to find a venue to publish their work.

A series on the grammars of Romance languages has been long a desideratum among the linguistic community. The Romance subseries of the Brill Grammars and Sketches of the World’s Languages series finally offers a proper venue for such valuable studies, which will appeal to Romance scholars and students working on Romance, as well as linguists keen to discover information about the numerous Romance varieties that are spoken todays in Europe and the Americas.

The series features books on synchronic and diachronic grammars, the phonology, morphology, and syntax of one or more Romance languages. While these grammars can be theoretically informed, this series does not feature specific theoretical analyses of language phenomena, but aims to be accessible to a broad audience. Theoretical tools are thus welcome, but do not constitute the main aim of the series.

This is a peer-reviewed series; the editor will work with authors to ensure high standards. For information on book proposals and publishing with Brill, please see the Resources for Authors pages.
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.

This series combines persisting needs with emerging emphases in Armenian studies. It encourages studies that place Armenian culture in its multifaceted international context, on the Armenian plateau as well as in its historic and current Diaspora.
Philological studies containing important critically edited texts, translations and commentaries remain in need as before. Thousands of Armenian manuscripts await disclosure in order to become part of scholarly and popular discourse and take their place in a field that invites an interdisciplinary and pluralistic approach like few others.
Armenian literature from the seventeenth century up to the present is understudied and will amply repay scholarly engagement.
In recent decades, the study of Armenian material culture, mythology and folklore has made great strides, next to art and architecture.The series welcomes contributions in these extensive fields.
Armenian Texts and Studies deals with Armenian prehistory up to the modern and contemporary period and promotes research that applies methods current in sociology, anthropology and other social sciences next to those used in literary, linguistic and historical studies, including the study of Armenian cinema and modern media.
