This is the second volume to be dedicated to the pioneering linguistic work produced by the religious missionaries who, within the scope of the European colonial enterprises along the period 1550–1850, described dozens of autochthonous languages, many of which are only known today thanks to their endeavours. The twelve papers joint in the present volume — which dedicated special attention to the orthographical and phonological dimension of their work — provide a comprehensive picture of the descriptive problems faced by these linguists avant la lettre, notably: the difficulties faced before the less familiar features of these languages, such as vowel quantity, accentuation, tonality, nasalization, glottalization, ‘gutturalization’; the building of (re)definitions and the creation of a new metalanguage, like ‘saltillo’, ‘guturaciones’, etc.; The book elucidates the creativity and innovations proposed by individual missionaries and the instructive and pedagogical dimension of their work.

“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.”
“[...] abre nuevos horizontes a la investigación, en tanto que plantea cuestiones que merecen ser más estudiadas. Se trata, en definitiva, de un volumen que pone nuevamente de manifiesto la vitalidad de este campo de los estudios historiográficos.”
“Os trabalhos reunidos na obra proporcionam uma boa visão da área da Historiografia da Lingüística Missionária, campo que busca reconstruir e mapear as diferentes soluções descritivas engendradas no contexto da gramaticização de línguas não-européias que se tornaram conhecidas a partir da Renascença. Esse contexto, em função das dificuldades que impôs aos descritores, foi especialmente propício à criatividade e à inovação, e por isso merece ser investigado.”
