Dear Colleagues,


We would like to announce the publication of the edited volume, The Cambridge Handbook of Korean Linguistics <https://www.cambridge.org/core/books/cambridge-handbook-of-korean-linguistics/305EC30BE77A7FE781B1CE489339F6AB> , from Cambridge University Press, part of the Cambridge Handbooks in Language and Linguistics <https://www.cambridge.org/academic/subjects/languages-linguistics/series/cambridge-handbooks-language-and-linguistics>  series.


The linguistic study of Korean, with its rich syntactic and phonological structure, complex writing system, and unique socio-historical context, is now a rapidly growing research area. Contributions from internationally renowned experts on the language provide a state-of-the-art overview of key current research in Korean language and linguistics. Chapters are divided into five thematic areas: phonetics and phonology, morphology and syntax, semantics and pragmatics, sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics, and language pedagogy. The Handbook includes cross-linguistic data to illuminate the features of Korean, and examples in Korean script, making it suitable for advanced students and researchers with or without prior knowledge of Korean linguistics. It is an essential resource for students and researchers wishing to explore the exciting and rapidly moving field of Korean linguistics.
