Short introduction

General Linguistics (AVS) is its own field of study and at the same time - due to the interdisciplinary literature available - serves all the philologies offered at the University of Regensburg in the field of linguistics. In addition to manuals, reference works and encyclopaedias, you will find interdisciplinary literature on the methodology of linguistics, linguistic theories and concepts as well as treatises on the general history of language (e.g. collections of essays whose individual contributions deal with the research of different languages).

The area of General Linguistics is covered by the local identifier 61 and, in the Regensburger Verbundklassifikation, comprises the notation sections EQ with ER, whereby the journals of General Linguistics are listed under EQ. Under the local identifier 61 and the systematics section E, the first part of which (EA with ED) is reserved for general and comparative literature, the holdings on non-European languages and literatures are also included (EE with EP). In addition to literature on the world auxiliary languages, the areas covered include American and Austro-Asian languages and literatures, Oriental studies, African studies and East Asian languages and literatures.

Conventional literature is increasingly supplemented by electronic media and web-based research tools. Within the framework of the financial possibilities of the University Library of Regensburg, your satisfaction with the literature equipment is our primary goal. Therefore, please inform us about your acquisition suggestions.
