NEW HANDBOOK
AMAZONIAN LANGUAGES
An International Handbook
Edited by Patience Epps, Lev Michael

The handbook will provide a coherent and widely accessible review of current research in Amazonian
linguistics, thus laying the groundwork for future scholarship in this important area.
Volume 1 will provide theory-neutral grammatical descriptions of smaller Amazonian language families
and all isolates that have been the object of linguistic research.
Volume 2 will focus on theory-neutral grammatical descriptions of larger Amazonian language families.

Die Cover der Kataloge von De Gruyter präsentieren den Siegerentwurf eines Grafikwettbewerbs,
den der Verlag in Kooperation mit dem Lette-Verein Berlin jährlich durchführt. Die Aufgabe war, eine
Motivserie mit dem Thema „Impulsgeber“ zu entwickeln und diesen Begriff visuell zu interpretieren.
Die Motive sollten sich als Fortsetzung über alle Katalogcover durchziehen. Wir danken dem Gewinner
Jonas Leue für seine gelungene Umsetzung. Sein Entwurf zeigt verschiedene Momentaufnahmen von
Lichtquellen und Funken, stellvertretend für den Impuls, der von wissenschaftlicher Literatur für den
gesellschaftlichen Fortschritt ausgeht.

The images on our catalogues are the product of a design competition that is carried out each year by
De Gruyter in cooperation with Lette Verein Berlin, a vocational training association. Participants desi-
gned a series of images that visually interpret the topic “impulse”. We would like to thank Jonas Leute
for his winning entry. His images show various snapshots of light and sparks, representing the impulse
that scholarly literature provides to support progress in society.

COMPARATIVE HANDBOOKS
OF LINGUISTICS
                                              The purpose of the series is to present collections of specific studies on particular
                                              topics in a format that facilitates cross-linguistic and cross-theoretical comparison.
                                              Each handbook takes up a single theme and includes a questionnaire; both the
                                              individual studies and the summary paper synthesizing the results of the comparison
                                              reflect the structure of the questionnaire.

                                              Unlike other handbooks that consist of chapters organized by theoretical topics,
                                              the handbooks of this series present empirical studies on various languages
                                              uniformly structured to facilitate comparison. A typical volume examines
                                              a grammatical feature or construction across languages (such as interrogative
                                              structures or numeral constructions), offers a survey of that feature through
                                              in-depth analyses cast in roughly the same theoretical framework, and formulates
                                              cross-linguistic generalizations. The handbooks also include accounts of
                                              constructions cast in different theoretical frameworks so that the empirical
                                              differences among the theories can be assessed and their similarities revealed.

                                              The volumes are accessible to the general academic community of linguists, meet
                                              the needs of students at the undergraduate and graduate level, and are of interest
                                              to specialists as well. Each volume is self-contained. Some of the volumes have
                                              associated websites to provide additional materials.

in China

This book is the first comprehensive grammar
of the Shaowu language spoken in northwestern
Fujian province in China. It offers readers first-hand
field data on the language whose classification
has been widely debated for several decades. The
language exhibits interesting typological features
of a linguistic transitional zone and is an excellent
example to illustrate the degree of hybridity a lan-
guage can attain due to intensive language contact.
