Aims and Scope
Linguistic Typology distinguishes itself as a forum for the typological community, catering to its special professional needs. In particular, these concern the empirical dimensions of the typological enterprise and the ensuing demands to coordinate research and keep track of a profusion of data and results. Therefore, Lingustic Typology specifically encourages informed dialogue and the proper recording of past and present achievements.

(1) title of the article, or full bibliographical details of the book reviewed, followed by the name(s) of the author(s);
(2) Abstract of not more than 100 words, followed by 3–5 suggested Keywords (both in the case of articles only);

When your submission has been accepted, send an electronic text file to the Editor that can be used for copy-editing and typesetting, accompanied by a .pdf and one printout. Especially at this final stage, follow the De Gruyter Mouton journal style sheet meticulously and avoid anything liable to complicate copy-editing and typesetting from the text file (fancy formatting, unnecessarily complex tables, figures, artwork, unusual fonts for usual characters).
