There are more native speakers of Sino-Tibetan languages than of any other language family in the world. Our records of these languages are among the oldest for any human language, and the amount of active research on them has multiplied in the last few decades. Now in its second edition and fully updated to include new research, The Sino-Tibetan Languages includes overview articles on individual languages, with an emphasis on the less commonly described languages, as well as descriptions and comments on the subgroups in which they occur. There are overviews of the whole family on genetic classification and language contact, syntax and morphology, and also on word order typology. There are also more detailed overview articles on the phonology, morphosyntax, and writing system of just the Sinitic side of the family. Supplementing these overviews are articles on Shanghainese, Cantonese and Mandarin dialects. Tibeto-Burman is reviewed by genetic or geographical sub-group, with overview articles on some of the major groups and areas, and there are also detailed descriptions of 41 individual Tibeto-Burman languages, written by world experts in the field. Designed for students and researchers of Asian languages, The Sino-Tibetan Languages is a detailed overview of the field. This book is invaluable to language students, experts requiring concise, but thorough, information on related languages, and researchers working in historical, typological and comparative linguistics.

This highly accessible introduction explores the core systems and subsystems of the languages of mainland Southeast Asia, applying the main concepts of language typology, phonology, morphology, syntax, sociolinguistics, language variation, and language contact, to this diverse language area. Written by a leading expert in the languages of this region, N. J. Enfield draws upon nearly a thousand data examples from over a hundred languages from Cambodia, China, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam to show the many ways in which these languages resemble each other, and differ from each other, in the context of what is known globally about the diversity of human language. The book highlights the diversity of the area's languages, with a special emphasis on the minority languages, which outnumber the national languages by nearly a hundred to one. The result is a welcome corrective to widespread beliefs about the nature of a 'typical' Southeast Asian language.

The architecture of the human language faculty has been one of the main foci of the linguistic research of the last half century. This branch of linguistics, broadly known as Generative Grammar, is concerned with the formulation of explanatory formal accounts of linguistic phenomena with the ulterior goal of gaining insight into the properties of the 'language organ'. The series comprises high quality monographs and collected volumes that address such issues. The topics in this series range from phonology to semantics, from syntax to information structure, from mathematical linguistics to studies of the lexicon.

Aung San Suu Kyi ist eine Gefangene in ihrem eigenen Land. Die Tochter des 1947 ermordeten Freiheitskämpfers Aung San steht an der Spitze der Protestbewegung gegen das Militärregime in Birma, ist jedoch von der Außenwelt abgeschnitten. Das demokratisch gewählte Oberhaupt Birmas steht seit 1989, mit kurzen Unterbrechungen, unter Hausarrest. In der Zeit ihrer Isolation ist die Friedensnobelpreisträgerin Aung San Suu Kyi zur Symbolfigur für die Auflehnung des Volkes Birma gegen ein grausames Militärregime geworden. Die hier aufgezeichneten Gespräche mit Alan Clements gewähren Einblicke in Aung San Suu Kyis vom Buddhismus geprägtes Leben und ihren Einsatz für den Frieden. Die Neuauflage ist um ein aktuelles Vorwort von Alan Clements, eine umfangreiche Chronologie der Ereignisse in Birma (bis 2008) und zahlreiche Internetlinks zu Birma ergänzt.
