Brill is delighted to announce the new series: Brill's Studies in Language, Cognition and Culture Linguistics (http://www.brill.nl/BSLC), edited by Alexandra Aikhenvald, R. M. W. Dixon and N. J. Enfield.
Brill's Studies in Language, Cognition and Culture (BSLC) is an innovative, peer-reviewed international forum that focuses on the interaction between the conceptualization of linguistic categories with cultural variables, and with human cognition.
Aims and Scope: This new peer-reviewed book series offers an international forum for high-quality original studies in languages and cultures. It focuses on the interaction between linguistic categories (and their conceptualization), cultural values, and human cognition. Publications in this series will include interdisciplinary studies on language, its meanings and forms, and possible interactions with cognitive and communicational patterns. The series spans cultural and social anthropology, cognitive science and linguistics. The emphasis is on inductive based cross-linguistic and crosscultural studies, with special attention to poorly known areas, such as Lowland Amazonia and the Pacific. The series is international in scope and it is envisaged that three to four new volumes will be published each year.
Readership: The targeted audience includes linguists of all persuasions, social and cultural anthropologists, social and cognitive scientists and psychologists.
