Aims and Scope

Probus is a platform for the discussion of historical and synchronic research in the field of Latin and Romance linguistics, with special emphasis on phonology, morphology, syntax, language acquisition and sociolinguistics. The journal aims to keep its readers abreast of the developments in Romance linguistics by encouraging problem-oriented contributions that combine the solid empirical foundations of philological and linguistic work with the insights provided by modern theoretical approaches.

Since its foundation in January 1989, Probus has proven to be a useful medium for the exchange of ideas, explanations, and solutions aiming at a better understanding of the structures of Romance languages.

Probus is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal of international scope.
