Aims and Scope

This book series publishes book-length studies on individual less-widely studied languages (primarily reference grammars), as well as works in broadly comparative typological linguistics that takes into account the world-wide diversity of human languages. Work on individual languages and broadly comparative work is of a different nature, but this book series sees the two as closely related: Comparative studies need in-depth work on individual languages from around the world to build on, and descriptive work is done best in a comparative perspective.

As of March 2021, Studies in Diversity Linguistics is split into Comprehensive Grammar Library and Research on Comparative Grammar. The original series does not accept any submissions anymore. 


Studies in Diversity Linguistics has the ISSN 2363-5568.
