The Journal of the Southeast Asian Linguistics Society recently published its second special publication. “Papers from the Chulalongkorn International Student Symposium on Southeast Asian Linguistics” is a collection of 19 papers.
The symposium organizers and volume editors invited authors to submit their manuscripts, which were then assessed by two anonymous reviewers to ensure high quality. Editors Pittayawat Pittayaporn, Sujinat Jitwiriyanont, Pavadee Saisuwan, and Bhimbasistha Tejarajanya say that all these student papers are “outstanding and reflects the authors’ high potential to become great linguists. Importantly, the number of promising young scholars that contributed to this volume suggests a very bright future for Southeast Asian linguistics as a field.”
The papers cover a full range of linguistic topics, including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, ethno/sociolinguistics, historical linguistics, and language acquisition. The languages are from almost all language families in the region: Austroasiatic, Austronesian, Tai-Kadai/Kradai, and Sino-Tibetan/Trans-Himalayan. The languages involved include national languages (e.g. Vietnamese, Thai, and Indonesian), large minority languages (e.g. Shan, Kachin, Chaoyang Chinese, etc.), and small and/or little studied minority languages (e.g. Nocte, Muklom Tangsa, etc.).
