Abstract:

The studies in this book represent the rich, diverse and substantial research
being conducted today in the linguistics of Mainland Southeast Asia. The
chapters cover a broad scope. Several studies address questions of language
relatedness, often challenging conventional assumptions about the status of
language contact as an explanatory factor in accounting for linguistic
similarities. Several address the question of Mainland Southeast Asia as a
linguistic area, exploring new ways to imagine and define the boundaries, and
indeed the boundedness, of a Mainland Southeast Asia area. Two contributions
rethink the received notion of the 'sesquisyllable' with new empirical and
theoretical angles. And a set of chapters explores topics in the morphology
and syntax of the region's languages, sometimes challenging orthodox
assumptions and claims about what a typical language of Mainland Southeast
Asia is like. Written by leading researchers in the field, and with a
substantial overview of current knowledge and new directions by the volume
editors N. J. Enfield and Bernard Comrie, this book will serve as an
authoritative source on where the linguistics of Mainland Southeast Asia is
at, and where it is heading.
