Aims and Scope

Text & Talk (founded as TEXT in 1981) is an internationally recognized forum for interdisciplinary research in language, discourse, and communication studies, focusing, among other things, on the situational and historical nature of text/talk production; the cognitive and sociocultural processes of language practice/action; and participant-based structures of meaning negotiation and multimodal alignment. Text & Talk encourages critical debates on these and other relevant issues, spanning not only the theoretical and methodological dimensions of discourse but also their practical and socially relevant outcomes.

Instructions for Authors

1. Contributions (approx. 6000–8000 words) should be in English (American spelling). Authors whose native language is not English are asked to have their article carefully checked by a native speaker. Manuscripts should be submitted as email attachments to TEXTandTALK@cardiff.ac.uk. No hard copies are required. The journal operates an anonymous peer review process.

2. The manuscript must be accompanied by a cover sheet listing, after ‘Submission for TEXT & TALK’: name(s) of the author(s); institutional address, telephone, fax numbers, and email address of the main author; home telephone number; article title; short title (for running head); and character count (including punctuation, spaces, etc.).

3. On separate pages please supply: 1) bionote (brief academic biography of the author, maximum of 75 words, including correspondence address); 2) abstract (maximum of 200 words) summarizing the whole article, not just the conclusions; 3) six keywords.

4. Manuscripts must be prepared double-spaced in 12 point font and divided into sections with numbered headings. All pages must be numbered. Emphasized words or phrases should be italicized. Foreign words should also be italicized and followed by a translation in single quotation marks. Use single not double quotation marks throughout. Please avoid the use of boldface in the text. For data transcripts (with line numbers rather than turn numbers), use a maximum of 60 characters per line (including spaces).

5. Following formal acceptance, contributors are requested to submit the final version electronically to TEXTandTALK@cardiff.ac.uk both in the following two formats: MS Word and PDF (the latter as a point of reference for any special characters [e.g., diacritical marks] that appear in the manuscript).

6. Line drawings and photographs (called ‘Figures’ in the text) must be reproducible originals and should be submitted on separate pages and placed at the end of the manuscript. A note should be placed in the text to indicate the approximate placement, e.g., ‘Figure 1 about here’. Figures should be numbered separately, i.e., Figure 1, 2, 3 etc. Captions for all figures should be typed on a separate page at the end of the article. All figures must be cited in the text.

7. Authors should refer to the De Gruyter Mouton journal style sheet, especially regarding the proper format for citations and reference entries.

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

9. Offprints. Upon publication, authors will receive electronic offprints (in PDF format) of their contribution. Guest editors of special issues will receive complimentary print copies of the issue.
