New Korean Linguistics Series

Fri Feb 14 21:54:20 UTC 2003

We are pleased to announce the launching of the Saffron Korean Linguistics
Series. Volumes in this series will be published by Eastern Art Publishing
(London, UK) ( in conjunction with the Centre of
Korean Studies, SOAS, University of London. The inaugural volume, due to
come out in early 2003, is "Korean Grammatical Constructions: Their Form
and Meaning" by Jaehoon Yeon (SOAS, University of London).

This series is devoted primarily to functionally and/or typologically
oriented research on Korean language and linguistics. Volumes in the
series, while dealing with specific topics in Korean language and
linguistics, will address broadly defined functional and/or typological
issues and concerns, rather than matters of abstract theoretical polemics.
Theoretical or applied work related to the Korean language will also be
considered. The series aims to offer an international academic forum for
Korean linguistics and language study.

The Series Editors are:

Jaehoon Yeon, Centre of Korean Studies, SOAS, University of London, London
WC1H 0XG, UK. E-mail: jy1 at

Jae Jung Song, Linguistics Programme, University of Otago, Dunedin, New
Zealand. E-mail: at

We welcome manuscripts or book proposals on any aspect of Korean
linguistics and language study, including Phonetics, Phonology, Morphology,
Syntax, Semantics, Pragmatics, Discourse Analysis, Sociolinguistics,
Language Acquisition, Historical Linguistics, and Korean Language Teaching.
Submission enquiries should initially be addressed to Jaehoon Yeon.
Manuscripts or book proposals must be submitted to both the Series Editors.
Contributors whose native language is not English should have their
manuscripts read (and corrected) by a native speaker
before submission.
