Bamberg Studies in Kurdish Linguistics

This series Bamberg Studies in Kurdish Linguistics (BSKL) provides the first platform dedicated to publishing book-length research contributions to the linguistics of Kurdish, including structural, sociolinguistic, historical, and documentary linguistics, or interdisciplinary research related to Kurdish. The series embraces a broad ethno-linguistic concept of "Kurdish", and contributions on closely related languages, or on linguistic topics relevant to the Kurdish-speaking region will also be eligible for publication. Contributions may include both collected volumes and monographs, as well as critical text editions or corpora. All publications are peer-reviewed and are published online in an open-access format, with the additional option of hard-cover versions on demand.

Current issues in Kurdish linguistics / Songül Gündoğdu, Ergin Öpengin, Geoffrey Haig, Erik Anonby (eds.)

Bamberg: Univ. of Bamberg Press, 2019
(Bamberg Studies in Kurdish Linguistics ; 1)

Preis: 21,00 €

Current Issues in Kurdish Linguistics contains ten contributions which span the field of Kurdish linguistics, both in terms of geography and in terms of the range of topics. Along with several works on Kurmanji (Northern Kurdish) and Sorani (Central Kurdish), two chapters shed light on the lesser-known Southern Kurdish language area. Other studies are comparative, and treat the Kurdish language area in its entirety. The linguistic approaches of the authors are a mix of formal and typological perspectives, and cover topics ranging from geographical distribution and variation to phonology, morphosyntax, discourse structure, historical morphology, and sociolinguistics.
The present volume is the first of its kind in bringing together contributions from a relatively large number of linguists, working in a diverse range of frameworks and on different aspects and varieties of Kurdish. As such, it attests to the increasing breadth and sophistication now evident in Kurdish linguistics, and is a worthy launch for the new series Bamberg Studies in Kurdish Linguistics (BSKL).
