Publications of the Philological Society

In pursuit of its charitable goals, and as funds permit, the Philological Society supports the work of researchers in linguistics and philology by financing the publication of a series of original research monographs, including those whose specialised topic may fall outside the remit of commercial publishers. The series is called Publications of the Philological Society, and is edited by Susan Fitzmaurice.

Publications of the Philological Society are published on behalf of Philological Society by Blackwell Publishing Ltd and distributed to all Philological Society members as part of their subscription package. Details of recent Publications are listed at the bottom of this page. Non-members, as well as institutions and libraries, can order copies direct from the publishers by clicking on the relevant link.

The Philological Society encourages all researchers, whether or not they are members, to submit proposals for research monographs for inclusion in the series. All proposals are sent to experts in the field for a rigorous reviewing process. Our standards are extremely high and only proposals with a very positive recommendation from the reviewers are considered for publication. Prior to submitting a proposal, potential authors should discuss their proposal with the series editor, who can be contacted by clicking on the link below. Philological Society members wishing to order titles from the Publications back catalogue can do so at reduced price and should contact the series editor.
