Remark: Studies in Caucasian Linguistics presents an overview of current linguistic research in the field of Caucasian languages. The articles in this volume are a selection of the papers presented at the Eighth Colloquium of the Societas Caucasologica Europ├Ža, held in Leiden, 6-8 June 1996. A significant part of the contributions is dedicated to the problem of genetic relationship and classification of Caucasian languages. This includes the reconstruction of vocabulary, morphemes and phonemes of North Caucasian languages, the study of diachronic development of various grammatical categories and elements in Georgian, as well as the study of contacts between various languages groups. Research in Caucasian linguistics is increasingly being facilitated by computer technology, as is shown by several articles. Topics of synchronic research in a number of Daghestanian languages can also be found in this volume, as well as a detailed report on the viability of the Adyghe language.
