Abstract:

This Handbook contains eight sections: history, languages and dialects,
language contact, morphology, syntax, phonetics and phonology, socio-cultural
aspects and neuro-psychological aspects. It provides not only a diachronic
view of how languages evolve, but also a synchronic view of how languages in
contact enrich each other by borrowing new words, calquing loan translation
and even developing new syntactic structures. It also accompanies traditional
linguistic studies of grammar and phonology with empirical evidence from
psychology and neurocognitive sciences. In addition to research on the Chinese
language and its major dialect groups, this handbook covers studies on sign
languages and non-Chinese languages, such as the Austronesian languages spoken
in Taiwan.
