South Asia is home to a large number of languages and dialects. Although linguists working on this region have made significant contributions to our understanding of language, society, and language in society on a global scale, there is as yet no recognized international forum for the exchange of ideas amongst linguists working on South Asia.

The Annual Reviewof South Asian Languages and Linguistics is designed to be just that forum. It brings together empirical and theoretical research and serves as a testing ground for the articulation of new ideas and approaches which may be grounded in a study of South Asian languages but which have universal applicability.

Each volumewill have four major sections:
I. Invited contributions consisting of state-of-the-art essays on research in South Asian languages.
II. Refereed open submissions focusing on relevant issues and providing various viewpoints.
III. Reports from around the world, book reviews and abstracts of doctoral theses.
