    Abstract

    The (de-)systemization of terms of address (henceforth TOA) is a thoroughly
    researched issue in pragmatics, and it is difficult to attain resounding
    success under the shadow of “classics” like Braun (1988). Yet
    Jucker and Taavitsainen were able to edit a book that will be prospectively
    influential for the further study of TOA. The Diachronic Perspec-
    tives on Address Term Systems is an innovative compilation which comprises
    writings from well-known authorities on TOA research in a wellarranged
    way. Even though the contributors present different ideas on
    temporally and spatially diverse languages, the reader gains a comprehensive
    and challenging insight into the contemporary research of historical
    TOA. Hence the work is not only relevant for TOA specialists,
    but is also a basic handbook for readers with more general interest.
