Dear colleagues,

I am presently preparing the regional report for Europe for the upcoming
issue of "The Yearbook of South Asian Languages and Lingusitics", edited
by Rajendra Singh. This edition of the "Regional Report - Europe" is to
contain information on ALL linguistic work published since 2004 by authors
working at a European institution or residing in Europe (similar reports
are being done for other parts of the globe) and is intended to document
the extent and variety of work done during this period.

Although such a regional report can probably never really be fully
exhaustive, I would like to cover as much work from as many scholars as
possible and to overlook as little as possible. I would therefore be
interested in hearing from anyone working in Europe on ANY aspects of
South Asian languages about their work. This includes work on any
language, language family or linguistic isolate spoken in South Asia (or
previously spoken in South Asia) from any of the following areas:

- Descriptive linguistics
- Historical linguistics
- Theoretical linguistics
- Phonetics / Phonology
- Typological studies
- Sociolinguistics
- Psycholinguistics
- Areal studies
- Computer linguistics

and much, much more!

Any information you could share with me on your own work or that of your
colleagues would greatly be appreciated!

All the best,

(Unfortunately, for reasons of space, I won't be including reviews in the
report, sorry!)
