Submission

Submitting to Diachronica

Diachronica welcomes submissions on all aspects of language change and reconstruction, including genetic relationships and classification. We especially seek work that combines new insights of theoretical interest with rigorous analysis of data. Papers should have a clearly diachronic orientation, as opposed to simply treating data from older languages synchronically.

Diachronica offers online submission. Please consult the Short Guide to EM for Authors before you submit your paper.

For further information on how to submit a contribution for consideration, please consult these documents:
