This Online Collection contains all volumes ever published in Brill's flagship series
Studies in Semitic Languages and Linguistics, from the first volume published in 1967 until the newest volumes which will be updated each year via an annual installment which is separately available at a highly discounted price. The series presents monographs and edited volumes that make original contributions to the field.
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.
