Foreign Languages

Routledge Language Family descriptions provide in-depth accounts of the members of some of the world's most important language families. Written by experts in each language, these accessible accounts provide detailed linguistic analysis and description. The contents are carefully structured to cover the natural system of classification: phonology, morphology, syntax, lexis, semantics, dialectology, and sociolinguistics. The consistent format within each volume allows for comparative study, not only between the languages in each volume, but also across all the volumes in the series.

New Subject Collections are created annually as new titles are added to the platform.
