Aims and Scope

This peer-reviewed book series offers an international forum for high-quality scholarly studies on the indigenous languages of South, Central and North America, including the Arctic. The publications in this series will concern both descriptive and analytical work on American indigenous languages, including handbooks, language surveys, grammatical descriptions, theoretical, historical, areal and typological monographs or particularly well-organized edited volumes with a central theme. Even though the scope of the series is international, authors are encouraged to write in English to maximize readership. We expect to publish four new volumes per year in this series. 


Readership: The core target of the series consists of Americanists, typologists,  theoretical linguists and general linguists. In addition, the series aims at scholars in related disciplines, such as anthropologists, archaeologists, ethnobiologists, historians and geneticists.
