Walter de Gruyter is a notable scholarly publisher, particularly of German language materials. It publishes over 250 books a year and over 60 scholarly journals. The publisher may be more recognizable in Germany (where it has offices) than in United States but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be included. I think any publisher that publishes this many books should be on Wikipedia. I was surprised it wasn't on already. The publisher's website lists an impressive history dating back over 250 years involving its role as publisher to King Frederick II. There is much that can be written on this publisher, who has a list of over 8000 books; I have only begun with a couple of sentences just to solidify the entry.

Their book A Handbook of Varieties of English was nominated for the AKEP Award 2006 for innovation in electronic publishing.Jacqueslacansan 07:20, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Not being the authorl I removed the speedy tag. The completely unwarranted tag, since the quickest check even on Google,would have found the many journals etc. published. This article does need documentation. I put on a tag for expand and for sources. DGG 11:18, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
