Aims and scope

This series publishes monographs and edited volumes dealing with languages spoken in the Caucasus, thus covering the three Caucasian language families (West Caucasian, East Caucasian and South Caucasian, also known as Abkhaz-Adyghe, Nakh-Daghestanian, and Kartvelian) as well as languages from other families primarily spoken in the Caucasus (e.g. Armenian, Ossetic, Azerbaijani). Acceptable formats of books are grammars, dictionaries, comparative studies and also studies of particular phenomena in one or several languages of the Caucasus. In line with the Russian tradition of language description, a special format will be collaborative descriptions.


The series accepts publications in English, Russian, French, and German.
