Perspectives on Linguistics and Ancient Languages (2165-2600): Perspectives on Linguistics and Ancient Languages (PLAL) contains peer-reviewed essays, monographs, and reference works. It focuses on the theory and practice of ancient-language research and lexicography that is informed by modern linguistics. For ancient-language study the dictionary is a primary resource. For its part, ancient-language lexicography draws on all aspects of ancient-language research. Linguistic theory and practice are basic to both. Thus, including these three complementary disciplines—ancient-language research, ancient-language lexicography, and modern linguistics—in the one series allows a better view of the linguistic universe in which every particle and galaxy is interrelated.
