Aims and Scope
Linguistics publishes articles and book reviews in the traditional disciplines of linguistics as well as in neighboring disciplines insofar as these are deemed to be of interest to linguists and other students of natural language.
Linguistics also publishes occasional Special Issues in these fields for which it welcomes proposals.
Linguistics is a peer-reviewed journal of international scope.

Instructions for Authors
Linguistics welcomes submissions of the following types: articles; squibs; book reviews; and replies. Book reviews are normally by invitation but unsolicited reviews may be accepted. Reviews are of two types: brief summaries (500-1000 words) and lengthier "Review Articles" that may cover more than one book and will be treated as Articles and thus peer reviewed. We encourage short replies to published articles. Any Replies received may be sent to Consulting Editors or others for invited commentary to appear with the Reply. All submissions should be original material neither submitted nor published elsewhere.
The address for submissions is email@example.com.
Submissions should be in English with American spelling. Contributors whose native language is not English should have their manuscripts read by a qualified native speaker before submission. With the exception of squibs and reviews, all articles must include an abstract of no more than 200 words and keywords. Pages should be numbered. Lines should be numbered page by page.
Authors should submit one electronic file containing complete author affiliations, address information, and acknowledgments and two electronic manuscript files - one PDF file and one file in a common wordprocessing format (not LaTeX), preferably MSWord. No hard copies are required. All fonts used must be Unicode. Authors should be prepared to provide their special fonts (in TTF format) if necessary. Initial submissions must be anonymous: the authors' names should not appear in the text and the authors' identities deleted from the file properties. Please list all works in the References that have been cited in the text. Do not list works that have not been cited. Authors are advised to adhere as closely as possible to the De Gruyter Mouton journal style sheet, especially regarding the form of Figures, Tables, Citations, and the References. For Examples, authors should attempt to follow the Leipzig Glossing Rules.
Authors should obtain permission for any copyrighted material used in the submission.
Articles accepted for publication: Authors are required to revise their manuscripts to conform completely to the De Gruyter Mouton journal style sheet, and all examples presented in the text must adhere to the Leipzig Glossing Rules. (Please follow the links provided above). Manuscripts should be free of Endnote coding.
Refereeing: Linguistics follows the "double-blind" refereeing procedure. The identities of both the authors and the referees remain confidential. All submissions other than short book reviews are refereed.
Proofs: Authors will receive PDF page proofs for correction, which must be returned by dates determined by the publication schedule. Please note that contributions may be additionally copyedited to conform to journal style.
Offprints: Upon publication, authors will receive electronic offprints of their contributions (in PDF format). Guest editors of special issues will receive complimentary print copies of the issue.
