Studies in Germanic Linguistics

Publications in this series will engage in achieving a more detailed and nuanced understanding of the structural development of Germanic languages and dialects past and present from a comparative perspective. Prospective manuscripts should target comparisons both within and outside of Germanic; especially West Germanic, and those that address German and/or English as a central focus of their analysis are particularly desirable. The series welcomes comparative analyses of aspects of Germanic languages from applied, experimental, formal, functional, and qualitative studies in any established subfield of linguistic inquiry (e.g., syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology, sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, psycholinguistics, and language acquisition). In addition to a comparative focus on Germanic languages, volumes in this series should also seek to contribute to theories of language structure, language use, language change, language acquisition, and language processing.
