Languages of Asia publishes monographs and other books based on original research and dealing with the languages of Asia as well on the languages of adjacent regions that originated in Asia, but are currently found elsewhere, such as, for example Western Turkic languages. The series focuses on descriptive and historical linguistics as well as on typology, with a special emphasis on descriptions of poorly known or inadequately and/or insufficiently described languages of the past and present, as well as in the works that significantly advance our knowledge about proto-languages in the area. Works published in the area of historical-comparative linguistics strictly adhere to the traditional Comparative Method. The series will potentially include dictionaries, glossaries, manuals, and other learning tools.
