"This book is the outcome of the first international conference on the Nuba Mountain languages, held in Leiden, September 2-4, 2011. The conference was organized by Heleen Smits and Jade Comfort, both active linguists with recent experience of linguistic field work in the Nuba Mountains. The conference brought together ca. 45 researchers from the Sudan, Europe and the United States.The articles in this book deal with languages from each of the ten indigenous language groups of the Nuba Mountains. They also cover a wide range of topics, with a focus on descriptive linguistics. However, it is often impossible to put a particular contribution into one of the traditional linguistic boxes syntax – morphology – phonology. This is to be expected in pioneer studies of previously poorly researched languages." (Schadeberg, T. C., & Blench, R., 2013)
