Description: Studies in Language International Journal sponsored by the Foundation “Foundations of Language” Editors: Bernard Comrie (Max Planck Institute, Leipzig) Michael Noonan (University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee) Werner Abraham (University of California, Berkeley) Studies in Language provides a forum for the discussion of issues in contemporary linguistics from discourse-pragmatic, functional, and typological perspectives. Areas of central concern are: discourse grammar; syntactic, morphological and semantic universals; pragmatics; grammaticalization and grammaticalization theory; and the description of problems in individual languages from a discourse-pragmatic, functional, and typological perspective. Special emphasis is placed on works which contribute to the development of discourse-pragmatic, functional, and typological theory and which explore the application of empirical methodology to the analysis of grammar. Two special book-series are affiliated to this well-established journal: Studies in Language Companion Series under the editorship of Werner Abraham and Michael Noonan, and Typological Studies in Language with T. Givon as editor. As from Vol. 20. the number of issues has been increased to 3 with a total number of pages per volume of ca. 725.
