Studies in Language

ISSN 0378-4177 | E-ISSN 1569-9978 | Electronic edition
Studies in Language (SL) provides a forum for the discussion of issues in contemporary linguistics, with a particular focus on empirically well-grounded research in the functionalist tradition that recognizes the diversity and variability of human languages and of communication patterns, the historical dynamics of languages, and the embedding of language in both social practices and cognition.

Studies in Language provides for three sections and types of contributions:

Regular articles: Regular articles are expected to adopt a cross-linguistic or comparative perspective and to advance our understanding of human language as such, in terms of state-of-the-art theories, methods, and analytical models or frameworks. Regular articles on one individual language are published only to the extent that they make a contribution of general interest.

News from the Field: SL welcomes short contributions that report on new discoveries in little-known or endangered languages, emphasizing description over theory and comparison. Contributions to this special section typically derive from original fieldwork and are expected to provide concise and well-substantiated analyses of linguistic phenomena that have not been noticed so far and for which the wider theoretical implications have yet to be established.

Discussions: SL publishes short position papers that outline or take issue with general visions of the field or address current developments. Contributions to this section may lead to response articles in the same or in a subsequent issue and one (very short) reply by the original contributor.

All submissions are subject to double-blind reviewing.

Studies in Language introduces a new special section that will appear at irregular intervals:
News from the field: We invite short contributions that report on new discoveries in little-known and/or endangered languages, emphasizing description over theory. Contributions will typically derive from original fieldwork and are expected to provide concise and well-substantiated analyses of linguistic phenomena that have not been noticed much in general or in the relevant family or area, but for which the wider theoretical and comparative implications cannot be established yet. Submissions will be refereed like regular articles.

Studies in Language now offers online submission.
