Available Now: The Oxford Guide to the Transeurasian Languages
The five-part volume combines genealogical and areal approaches, computational and classical historical linguistics, and functional and formal linguistics to provide a comprehensive account of the Transeurasian languages.
The historical connection between Transeurasian languages (Japonic, Koreanic, Tungusic, Mongolic, and Turkic) is one of the most debated issues in historical comparative linguistics. In the present book, a team of leading international scholars in the field take a balanced approach to this controversy, using perspectives from archaeology, genetics, and anthropology to complement linguistic insights.
Edited by Martine Robbeets, leader of the eurasia3angle research group at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History (MPI-SHH) and Alexander Savelyev, postdoctoral researcher at MPI-SHH, The Oxford Guide to the Transeurasian Languages is the first major reference work in the field since 1965.
The volume is divided into five parts:
Part I - Sources and Classification
Part I - Individual Structural Overviews
Part III - Comparative Overviews
Part IV - Areal Versus Inherited Connections
Part V- Interdisciplinary Perspectives on the Identity of Transeurasian
The Oxford Guide to the Transeurasian Languages is an essential resource for specialists in Japonic, Koreanic, Tungusic, Mongolic, and Turkic and anyone with an interest in Transeurasian and comparative linguistics.
The book is available in both hardcover and Ebook now via Oxford University Press.
