Aims and Scope

Corpus Linguistics and Linguistic Theory is a peer-reviewed journal publishing high-quality original corpus-based research focusing on theoretically relevant issues in all core areas of linguistic research (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics), or other recognized topic areas.

It features:

  • Papers that develop new corpus-linguistic methods or extensions of existing methods of interest in the context of linguistic theorizing;

  • Papers that test or evaluate theoretical claims using corpus data and corpus-linguistic methods;

  • Papers that offer systematic and detailed analyses of individual linguistic phenomena within a theoretical framework;

  • Papers that compare corpus data to other kinds of empirical data, such as experimental or questionnaire data;

  • Critical surveys of relevant areas of research; 

  • Squibs (short notes on theoretical issues, short reports of interesting data, or short replies to or rebuttals of previously published articles);

  • Reviews of new books, corpora, or software packages.

Corpus Linguistics and Linguistic Theory is a peer-reviewed journal of international scope.

Type of Publication:

Instructions for Authors

1. Submitting an article for publication

Whenever possible, to ensure prompt review, manuscripts should be submitted online to:

Manuscripts are not returnable. Authors should keep a copy for reference. Please be advised that paper submissions may take substantially longer to review. Articles should be in English. Authors whose native language is not English are asked to have their article carefully checked by a native speaker.

2. Peer review

The journal operates a double-blind peer review that usually takes four months. Submissions are sent to two reviewers.

3. Formatting and style

Corpus Linguistics and Linguistic Theory does not require that authors conform to a specific format when submitting articles for review. However, please ensure that articles are as reader-friendly as possible. Please also include an abstract of approximately 100 words placed before the text body of the manuscript followed by 3–10 keywords. Once accepted for publication, the authors will be required to submit the final version electronically (in .doc or .odt format) conforming to journal style. Submissions should be formatted according to the De Gruyter Mouton journal style sheet.

4. Manuscript length

There is no specific limit for article length. Please be advised, however, that reviewers will be instructed to pay careful attention to length-to-content ratios. Brief articles and discussions (10 pages or less) are encouraged.

5. Permissions

Copies of any letters granting permission to reproduce illustrations or tables from other sources, or lengthy quoted passages, must be included with the manuscript.

6. Proofs

Authors are asked to check their manuscripts very carefully before submitting them in order to prevent delays and extra costs at proofing. Authors will receive PDF proofs for correction which must be returned by dates given in the publication schedule.

7. Offprints
