When the first European missionaries arrived on other continents, it was decided that the indigenous languages would be used as the means of christianization. There emerged the need to produce grammars and dictionaries of those languages. The study of this linguistic material has so far not received sufficient attention in the field of linguistic historiography. This volume is the first published collection of papers on missionary linguistics world-wide; it represents the insights of recent research, containing an introduction and papers on methodology, meta-historiography, the historical and cultural background. The book contains studies about early-modern linguistic works written in Spanish, Portuguese, English and French, describing among others indigenous languages from North America and Australia, Maya, Quechua, Xhosa, Japanese, Kapampangan, and Visaya. Topics dealt with include: innovations of individual missionaries in lexicography, grammatical analysis, phonology, morphology, or syntax; creativity in descriptive techniques; differences and/or similarities of works from different continents, and different religious backgrounds (Catholic or Protestant).

“Los diferentes autores que contribuyen dos volúmenes [SiHoLS 106 & 109] muestran que la lingüística misionera no sólo es original e innovadora, sino que puede ser de utilidad para futuros estudios tipológicos y comparativos.”
“This collection is an important contribution to the history of linguistics, especially of the Eastern Hemisphere.”
“[...] es de extraordinario interés tanto para los especialistas en la historia de la lingüística aplicada como para los expertos en la evolución de las ideas lingüísticas en el enorme laboratorio humano del contraste de lenguas a largo de la historia. La tradición lingüística misionera se enfrentó, y en muchas ocasiones con notable éxito, al complejo problema de la comunicación interlingüística e intercultural. Su estudio no puede sino echar luz sobre una cuestión cada vez más presente en el mundo actual.”
