Publications in Linguistics

Publications in Linguistics, is a venue for works covering a broad range of topics in linguistics, especially the analytical treatment of minority languages from all parts of the world. While most volumes are authored by members of SIL International, suitable works by others also occasionally form part of the series. From 1976 to 2010, Publications in Linguistics was published jointly by SIL International and the University of Texas at Arlington.
