The Routledge Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics provides a showcase for the latest research and strands of current interests in these fields.
The series takes a multi-disciplinary approach, with titles focusing on core topics in the several areas of linguistics, such as sociolinguistics, area studies, language contact and variation, language research for the professions, and heritage languages. Through a discussion of data, problems, issues and possible solutions, books in the series combine theoretical and applied aspects of linguistic study.
Published in English, Spanish or Portuguese, titles in the series are intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students, teachers and researchers. They are also ideal for foreign language professionals returning to academic study and for program curricula. Proposals for the series will be welcomed by the Series Editor.
