About the Series

Routledge Studies in Asian Linguistics

Edited by Walter Bisang, Mainz University, Germany

Asia is the world's largest continent, comprising an enormous wealth of languages, both in its present as well as its eventful past. This series contributes to the understanding of this linguistic variety by publishing books from different thoeretical backgrounds and different methodological approaches, dealing with at least one Asian language. By adopting a maximally integrative policy, the editors of the series hope to promote theoretical discussions whose solutions may, in turn, help to overcome the theoretical lean towards West European languages and thus provide a deeper understanding of Asian linguistic structures and of human language in general.
