For "classic" linguistics there appears to be a need for a review of the state of the art which will provide a reference base for the rapid advances in research undertaken from a variety of theoretical standpoints, while in the more recent branches of communication science the handbooks will give researchers both an verview and orientation.

To attain these objectives, the series will aim for a standard comparable to that of the leading handbooks in other disciplines, and to this end will strive for comprehensiveness, theoretical explicitness, reliable documentation of data and findings, and up-to-date methodology.

The editors, both of the series and of the individual volumes, and the individual contributors, are committed to this aim. The languages of publication are English, German, and French. The main aim of the series is to provide an appropriate account of the state of the art in the various areas of linguistics and communication science covered by each of the various handbooks; however no inflexible pre-set limits will be imposed on the scope of each volume.

The series is open-ended, and can thus take account of further developments in the field. This conception, coupled with the necessity of allowing adequate time for each volume to be prepared with the necessary care, means that there is no set time-table for the publication of the whole series.

Each volume will be a self-contained work, complete in itself. The order in which the handbooks are published does not imply any rank ordering, but is determined by the way in which the series is organized; the editor of the whole series enlist a competent editor for each individual volume.

Once the principal editor for a volume has been found, he or she then has a completely free hand in the choice of co-editors and contributors. The editors plan each volume independently of the others, being governed only by general formal principles. The series editor only intervene where questions of delineation between individual volumes are concerned.

It is felt that this modus operandi is best suited to achieving the objectives of the series, namely to give a competent account of the present state of knowledge and of the perception of the problems in the area covered by each volume. The handbook Language and Emotion is intended to give a historical and systematic profile of the area. It will aim to connect contemporary and historical theories, approaches, and applications and to cover eastern and western perspectives of language, communication, and emotion.

It will present all relevant aspects of language and emotion and thus contribute significantly to research in the field of linguistics and semiotics of emotion. The first section presents interdisciplinary emotion theories relevant for the field of language and communication research, including the history of emotion research.

The second section focuses on the full range of emotion-related aspects in linguistics, semiotics, and communication theories. The next section focuses on cultural studies and language and emotion; emotions in arts and literature, as well as research on emotion in literary studies; and media and emotion. The final section covers different domains, social practices, and applications, such as society, policy, diplomacy, economics and business communication, religion and emotional language, the domain of affective computing in human-machine interaction, and language and emotion research for language education.

Overall, this Handbook represents a comprehensive overview in a rich, diverse compendium never before published in this particular domain. The goal of this handbook is to provide a comprehensive resource on the Amazonian languages that synthesizes a diverse body of work by a highly international group of linguists.

It will provide a review of the current state of the art, thus laying the groundwork for future scholarship in this important area. Volume 2 will focus on theory-neutral grammatical descriptions of smaller Amazonian language families. This handbook provides the first broadly comprehensive, typologically-informed descriptive overview of the languages of Greater Amazonia. Organized by genealogical units, the chapters provide empirically rich descriptions of the phonology and grammar of all Amazonian families and isolates for which data and descriptions exist.

Volume 1 focuses on the many isolates of the region — those languages for which no extant sisters can be identified. How can linguistics be a cultural science? Answering this question requires the use of methodological resources in linguistics as well as outside perspectives drawn from related disciplines. This Handbook represents the development of research and the current level of knowledge in the fields of syntactic theory and syntax analysis.

Syntax can look back to a long tradition. Especially in the last 50 years, however, the interaction between syntactic theory and syntactic analysis has led to a rapid increase in analyses and theoretical suggestions. This second edition of the Handbook on Syntax adopts a unifying perspective and therefore does not place the division of syntactic theory into several schools to the fore, but the increase in knowledge resulting from the fruitful argumentations between syntactic analysis and syntactic theory.

It uses selected phenomena of individual languages and their cross-linguistic realizations to explain what syntactic analyses can do and at the same time to show in what respects syntactic theories differ from each other.

It investigates how syntax is related to neighbouring disciplines and investigate the role of the interfaces especially the relationship between syntax and phonology, morphology, compositional semantics, pragmatics, and the lexicon. The phenomena chosen bring together renowned experts in syntax, and represent the consensus reached as to what has to be considered as an important as well as illustrative syntactic phenomenon.

The phenomena discuss do not only serve to show syntactic analyses, but also to compare theoretical approaches with each other. This book presents the most comprehensive coverage of the field of Indo-European Linguistics in a century, focusing on the entire Indo-European family and treating each major branch and most minor languages. The collaborative work of scholars from 22 countries, Handbook of Comparative and Historical Indo-European Linguistics combines the exhaustive coverage of an encyclopedia with the in-depth treatment of individual monographic studies.

This handbook comprises an in-depth presentation of the state of the art in word-formation. The five volumes contain articles written by leading international scholars. The XVI chapters of the handbook provide the reader, in both general articles and individual studies, with a wide variety of perspectives: word-formation as a linguistic discipline history of science, theoretical conceptsunits and processes in word-formation, rules and restrictions, semantics and pragmatics, foreign word-formation, language planning and purism, historical word-formation, word-formation in language acquisition and aphasia, word-formation and language use, tools in word-formation research.

The final chapter comprises 74 portraits of word-formation in the individual languages of Europe and offers an innovative perspective. These portraits afford the first overview of this kind and will prove useful for future typological research. This handbook will provide an essential reference for both advanced students and researchers in word-formation and related fields within linguistics. Cognitive Linguistics is an approach to language study based on the assumptions that our linguistic abilities are firmly rooted in our cognitive abilities, that meaning is essentially conceptualization, and that grammar is shaped by usage.

The Handbook of Cognitive Linguistics provides state-of-the-art overviews of the numerous subfields of cognitive linguistics written by leading international experts which will be useful for established researchers and novices alike. It is an interdisciplinary project with contributions from linguists, psycholinguists, psychologists, and computer scientists which will emphasise the most recent developments in the field, in particular, the shift towards more empirically-based research.

In this way, it will, we hope, help to shape the field, encouraging methodologically more rigorous research which incorporates insights from all the cognitive sciences. Volume II of the handbook offers a unique collection of exemplary case studies. In five chapters and 99 articles it presents the state of the art on how body movements are used for communication around the world.

Topics include the functions of body movements, their contexts of occurrence, their forms and meanings, their integration with speech, and how bodily motion can function as language. Volume II of the handbook thus entails the following chapters:. Gestures across cultures, VII. Body movements: functions, contexts and interactions, VIII. Gesture and language, IX. Embodiment: the body and its role for cognition, emotion, and communication, X. Sign Language: Visible body movements as language.

Volume I of the handbook presents contemporary, multidisciplinary, historical, theoretical, and methodological aspects of how body movements relate to language. It documents how leading scholars from differenct disciplinary backgrounds conceptualize and analyze this complex relationship.

Five chapters and a total of 72 articles, present current and past approaches, including multidisciplinary methods of analysis. The chapters cover:. How the body relates to language and communication: Outlining the subject matter, II. Perspectives from different disciplines, III. Historical dimensions, IV. Contemporary approaches, V. Authors include: Michael Arbib, Janet Bavelas, Marino Bonaiuto, Paul Bouissac, Judee Burgoon, Martha Davis, Susan Duncan, Konrad Ehlich, Nick Enfield, Pierre Feyereisen, Raymond W.

Gibbs, Susan Goldin-Meadow, Uri Hadar, Adam Kendon, Antja Kennedy, David McNeill, Lorenza Mondada, Fernando Poyatos, Klaus Scherer, Margret Selting, Jürgen Streeck, Sherman Wilcox, Jeffrey Wollock, Jordan Zlatev. Sign language linguists show here that all questions relevant to the linguistic investigation of spoken languages can be asked about sign languages. Conversely, questions that sign language linguists consider - even if spoken language researchers have not asked them yet - should also be asked of spoken languages.

The HSK handbook Sign Language aims to provide a concise and comprehensive overview of the state of the art in sign language linguistics. It includes 44 chapters, written by leading researchers in the field, that address issues in language typology, sign language grammar, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, sociolinguistics, and language documentation and transcription. Crucially, all topics are presented in a way that makes them accessible to linguists who are not familiar with sign language linguistics.

The handbook The Semitic Languages offers a comprehensive reference tool for Semitic Linguistics in its broad sense. It is not restricted to comparative Grammar, although it covers also comparative aspects, including classification. By comprising a chapter on typology and sections with sociolinguistic focus and language contact, the conception of the book aims at a rather complete, unbiased description of the state of the art in Semitics.

Articles on individual languages and dialects give basic facts as location, numbers of speakers, scripts, numbers of extant texts and their nature, attestation where appropriate, and salient features of the grammar and lexicon of the respective variety. The handbook is the most comprehensive treatment of the Semitic language family since many decades.

The handbook Deutsch als Fremd- und Zweitsprache summarizes existing knowledge on acquisition and teaching of the German language in different contexts in altogether articles. It is not only addressed to specialists, but rather makes the subject area accessible for everyone, whose scholarly or practical work has to do with the German language in the context of linguistic and cultural diversity. The present second volume completes the handbook Die slavischen Sprachen "The Slavic languages.

Ein internationales Handbuch zu ihrer Struktur, ihrer Geschichte und ihrer Erforschung. An International Handbook of their History, their Structure and their Investigation". While the general conception is continued, the present volume now contains articles concerning inner and outer language history as well as problems of sociolinguistics, contact linguistics, standardology and language typology.

This handbook aims at a state-of-the-art overview of both earlier and recent research on older, newer and emerging non-standard varieties dialects, regiolects, sociolects, substandard varieties of German. The discussion concerns the theoretical embedding, potential interdisciplinary connections and the methodology of the studies at issue.

It presents general concepts and approaches in the broad domain of German variation linguistics. This handbook aims at a state-of-the-art overview of both earlier and recent research into older, newer and emerging non-standard varieties dialects, regiolects, sociolects, ethnolects, substandard varietiestransplanted varieties and daughter languages mixed languages, creoles of Dutch.

The discussion concerns the theoretical embedding, potential interdisciplinary connections and the methodology of the studies at issue, keeping in mind comparability and generalizability of the findings. It presents general concepts and approaches in the broad domain of Dutch variation linguistics and the main developments in different varieties of Dutch and their offspring abroad.

The book counts 47 chapters, written by over 40 scholars from the Netherlands, Flanders, Germany, England, South Africa, Australia, the USA, and Jamaica. The Handbook of Language Mapping aims to explore the core methodological and theoretical approaches of linguistic cartography. In both empirical and theoretical linguistics, the spatial variation of language is of increasing interest and the visualization of language in space is therefore also of growing significance. It is the precondition for correct data interpretation.

But how does it work? What has to be considered when drawing a map? And how has the problem been tackled so far? This book provides answers to such questions by taking a closer look at the theoretical issues surrounding cartography and at the concrete practice of mapping. The fundamental issues raised are addressed particularly well, since linguistic geography is not only one of the domains with a lengthy tradition, it is also one of the most progressive fields in linguistics.

Clear and concisely written, this series provides comprehensive insight into linguistic interrelationships. Each volume addresses a different linguistic phenomenon, rather than being devoted to a specific subfield. Beyond providing systematic descriptions, the series addresses historical as well as social language configurations, normative public opinion, and the significance of linguistic phenomena in key domains of knowledge and human activity.

Intended not just for students and scholars of linguistics, the handbooks are also directed at interested academics from other disciplines, furnishing a sound understanding of the field. This handbook discusses urbanity as a communicative and linguistically constituted concept. Special focus is placed on the integration of urban linguistics into the traditional disciplines of linguistic research and the presentation of urbanity as an interdisciplinary phenomenon.

Covering relevant concepts from international research with reference to empirical data, the handbook imparts basic knowledge on a key theme in contemporary linguistics. This work examines the linguistic construction of knowledge in history, politics, and society. It presents a range of disciplinary approaches, linguistic phenomena such as lexemes, text types, and rhetorical tropesand political, historical and, social structures such as actors, media, and commemoration. Case analyses reveal that history, politics, and society are inextricably interlinked in the social construction of knowledge.

The Handbook of Language and Religion offers the first extensive amalgamation of research findings on religion from linguistics and other disciplines. Understanding key concepts such as charisma, ritual, annunciation, worship, commemoration, ineffability, transcendence, and metaphysics will facilitate dialogue between researchers, teachers, and students engaged in the study of language and religion from diverse academic perspectives. This handbook deals with linguistic aspects of literature and literary knowledge.

Zur Sprache in Naturwissenschaft, Technik und Mathematik liegen zahlreiche Einzelstudien vor. Das Handbuch ordnet das Feld aus einer dezidiert sprachwissenschaftlichen Sicht. Ausgangspunkt ist die Rolle der Sprache in der Wissenskonstitution und -vermittlung.

Dieser Zugriff ermöglicht es Linguisten und anderen Wissenschaftlern, mehr über den Zusammenhang zwischen Sprache und Wissen in diesen Disziplinen zu erfahren, und liefert Anknüpfungspunkte für die weitere Forschung.

Auf dieser Basis wird ein Überblick über die Funktionsweise der Sprache und weiterer Medien in Naturwissenschaft, Technik und Mathematik geliefert. The handbook aims to provide broad survey of organizational communication in German, English, French, and Spanish while giving due attention to the cultures of each language.

The Handbook of Language in Law documents the textual and communicative processes of setting standards in the law. Its focus is on the legal explication of meaning, as examined from the perspectives of the courts, the legislature, the executive, and legal science. For the first time, it provides linguists, legal scholars, and social scientists with an introductory compendium on the theory, empiricism, and methodology of legal linguistics.

Language is not only a subject of reflection for linguists. Language, language change, and language usage are often addressed, discussed, and analyzed beyond the confines of linguistics. This handbook provides an overview of the themes, issues, controversies, methods, and history of non-linguistic reflection on language, while also offering insight into linguistic theories and methods for describing and evaluating them.

This handbook presents the various dimensions of language use in social groups. After a basic introduction, it focuses on three areas: 1 language patterns and communication in social groups; 2 language use in particular social groups, and 3 areas of application. The essays reflect central themes, examining each of them based on the current state of research. The Handbook of Language in History examines the role ascribed to speaking and writing in the German language over the course of language history.

It reveals the historicity of language in the transmission of language awareness and the range of linguistic usage. A general section is followed by an analysis of different domains of knowledge the quotidian, institutional, religious, scientific, and poetic worlds. The handbook covers language usage in multi-semiotic textual environments. Integrating linguistic features with images, sounds, and typography creates patterns of substantive, formal, and functional linkage.

The volume outlines the paradigms in multimodal linguistic research, systematic methods for analyzing semiotically complex texts, and offers insight about the functionality of selected types of multimodal texts. Different linguistic approaches see discourses in terms of dynamic, heterogeneous, and conflictual constellations. The volume also covers the materiality of discourse as knowledge-based coding of social conventions and beliefs, thereby capturing current debates in discourse linguistics.

The handbook brings together key findings and current research issues in the linguistics of text and conversation based on a research tradition extending across 40 years. The basic focus is on the ways that texts and conversations constitute, represent, discursively implement, and communicate knowledge. General survey articles on characteristic features of texts and conversations are supplemented with essays on specific communication areas.

The handbook offers multifaceted insights for scholars and students interested in linguistics, founded on the most up-to-date theoretical and empirical research on the units of the German spoken language. It covers the characteristic features of syllables, words, and larger units. In addition, pursuing the goal of a systematic intermodal phonology, it also covers these units in German sign language and writing. The inaugural volume of the Handbücher Sprachwissen series demonstrates the relevance of language as a symbolic system for creating knowledge and applying it in social domains and other spheres of activity medicine, law, business, etc.

The series takes a language-systemic perspective that goes from sound to text and discourse, combining it with a usage-orientedapproach focusing on linguistic phenomena as such. EN English Deutsch.
