ISLP Series

The ISLP published its first volume in 2003 in the series Perspectives on Syriac Linguistics (PoSL), which includes colloquia and monographs. In 2012 PoSL was replaced by Perspectives on Linguistics and Ancient Languages (PLAL), expanding the scope of the former to include other ancient languages. The prefaces to both series give a brief history of the ISLP’s beginnings to the present. Both series focuses on the theory and practice of ancient-language lexicography and subjects relating to it. Contemporary approaches to ancient-language lexicography in an age of digital technologies are linked to the study of modern linguistics and to virtually every aspect of ancient-language endeavour, including socio-cultural inquiry. Accordingly, these series contain collections of peer-reviewed essays, monographs, and reference works that have relevance to the ever-increasing reaches of ancient-language lexicography and that allow a better view of the linguistic universe in which every particle and galaxy are interrelated.
