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.

The series is targeted at the historical linguistics community at large. It should be of interest to scholars working on both well-known and well-documented languages and language families and to scholars doing historical-comparative research on less-documented languages or language families.
