Description

Over the past few decades, the book series Linguistische Arbeiten [Linguistic Studies], comprising over 500 volumes, has made a significant contribution to the development of linguistic theory both in Germany and internationally. The series will continue to deliver new impulses for research and maintain the central insight of linguistics that progress can only be made in acquiring new knowledge about human languages both synchronically and diachronically by closely combining empirical and theoretical analyses. To this end, we invite submission of high-quality linguistic studies from all the central areas of general linguistics and the linguistics of individual languages which address topical questions, discuss new data and advance the development of linguistic theory.show more

Review quote

"Pietsch has not only provided a milestone in his genuinely original contribution to the scholarly Fachliteratur; he is also exemplary in the thoroughness with which he has conducted his research at every level and also in the easefulness with which he has conceived and presented it. Difficult, complex ideas are conveyed with commendable cogency and clarity. Innovation in cartographic design provides effective interpretations. Pietsch shorws that he is as much at home with reading his data, marshalling frequencies into analysed data subsets, and conducting statistical tests, as he is with dealing with linguistic history and evolution, interpreting variation and change and engaging trenchantly with theory. This is, without doubt, a mouldbreaking study of its subject and a model for others to follow."John M. Kirk in: Zeitschrift fur Dialektologie und Linguistik Heft 2 (2010)" "Pietsch has not only provided a milestone in his genuinely original contribution to the scholarly Fachliteratur; he is also exemplary in the thoroughness with which he has conducted his research at every level and also in the easefulness with which he has conceived and presented it.
