Pragmatics and Society puts the spotlight on societal aspects of language use, while incorporating many other facets of society-oriented pragmatic studies. It brings together a variety of approaches to the study of language in context, inspired by different research perspectives and drawing on various disciplines, for instance, sociology, psychology, developmental and cognitive science, anthropology, media research, and computer-related social studies. It is concerned with how language use and social normativity influence and shape each other, for instance, in education (the teaching and acquisition of first and second languages), in political discourse (with its manipulative language use), in the discourse of business and the workplace, and in all kinds of discriminatory uses of language (gender- and class-based or other). Finally, it pays special attention to the impact that our increased dependency on the computer is having on communication and interaction (especially as seen in the social media), as well as to the role of pragmatics in guiding social and racial emancipatory developments. The journal does not accept unsolicited reviews.

Pragmatics and Society publishes its articles Online First.

    Easy Submission. We offer you an opportunity to submit your paper in any format or lay-out that can be used by referees to evaluate your manuscript. The paper should still contain sections, readable figures, and use a consistent citation style of your choice for reviewers' convenience. Only when your paper is at the revision stage will you be requested to put your paper in a correct format for acceptance and provide the high-resolution items required for the publication of your article.

    Anonymization. This journal uses double blind peer review, which means the identities of the authors are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa. To facilitate this, please ensure that the manuscript submitted for review does not contain your name on the title page. Please do not replace the authors' last names in in-text citations with 'Author'; it is sufficient to discuss such citations in the third person. Such replacement should only be made if it is absolutely necessary to refer to the work authors have previously undertaken and to identify it as belonging to the manuscript's authors (for instance, to cite an unpublished dataset).
