The handbook will offer a survey of the field of linguistics in the early 21st century for the Southeast Asian Linguistic Area. The last half century has seen a great increase in work on language contact, work in genetic, theoretical, and descriptive linguistics, and since the 1990s especially documentation of endangered languages. The book will provide an account of work in these areas, focusing on the achievements of SEAsian linguistics, as well as the challenges and unresolved issues, and provide a survey of the relevant major publications and other available resources. We will address:
Survey of the languages of the area, organized along genetic lines, with discussion of relevant political and cultural background issues
Theoretical/descriptive and typological issues
Genetic classification and historical linguistics
Areal and contact linguistics
Other areas of interest such as sociolinguistics, semantics, writing systems, etc.
Resources (major monographs and monograph series, dictionaries, journals, electronic data bases, etc.)
Grammar sketches of languages representative of the genetic and structural diversity of the region.
