TRENDS IN LINGUISTICS is a series of books that open new perspectives in our understanding of language. The series publishes state-of-the-art work on core areas of linguistics across theoretical frameworks, as well as studies that provide new insights by approaching language from an interdisciplinary perspective.

TRENDS IN LINGUISTICS considers itself a forum for cutting-edge research based on solid empirical data on language in its various manifestations, including sign languages. It regards linguistic variation in its synchronic and diachronic dimensions as well as in its social contexts as important sources of insight for a better understanding of the design of linguistic systems and the ecology and evolution of language.

TRENDS IN LINGUISTICS publishes monographs and outstanding dissertations as well as edited volumes, which provide the opportunity to address controversial topics from different empirical and theoretical viewpoints. High quality standards are ensured through anonymous reviewing.

Industry Reviews

"[...] a reliable compendium of all there is known about Latin and Indo-European."
Edgar C. Polome in: Journal of Indo-European Studies

"Insgesamt handelt es sich bei den Foundations of Latin um eine eindrucksvolle Synthese des sprachgeschichtlichen Wissens zum Lateinischen, die jeder Klassische Philologe mit Gewinn benutzen wird. Erleichtert wird die Benutzung durch mehrere Register und vor allem durch den leicht lesbaren Stil, der oft zu horenden studentischen Klagen gegenuber arkaner Darbietungsweise sprachhistorischer Arbeiten keinerlei Angriffspunkt bietet."
F. Heberlein in: Gymnasium, 1/2001/ Bd. 108, Heidelberg
