Linguistics of the Tibeto-Burman Area

Linguistics of the Tibeto-Burman Area is a peer-reviewed (refereed) journal devoted to the synchronic and diachronic study of the languages of the Southeast Asian linguistic area, especially the vast and ramified Tibeto-Burman family, the only proven relatives of Chinese. In addition to Tibeto-Burman, articles have appeared on all the major language families of mainland Southeast Asia, notably a monograph on the Waic branch of Mon-Khmer (Vol. 5.2), a special issue containing fourteen articles on Hmong-Mien (Vol. 10.2), and two volumes on Lai Chin (Vols. 20.2 and 21.1). Other issues devoted entirely to a single monograph include Vol. 18.2 on the etymology of an ancient Chinese zodiacal sign; a pioneering grammar of a Loloish language (Vol. 20.1); and a full scale reconstruction of Proto-Kra (Vol. 23.1).

LTBA was founded in 1974, and has been in continuous publication ever since, attracting contributions from many of the leading scholars in the field.
