Aims and Scope
Theoretical Linguistics is an open peer review journal. Each issue contains one long target article about a topic of general linguistic interest, together with several shorter reactions, comments and reflections on it. With this format, the journal aims to stimulate discussion in linguistics and adjacent fields of study, in particular across schools of different theoretical orientations.

Instructions for Authors
Form of manuscript. All pages should be numbered. The first should include the article, title, and the author's name and affiliation. It should also include name and mailing address to be used for correspondence and transmission of proofs. The second page should include a list of symbols used in the article and the number of pages, number of tables, and number of figures. It should also contain a proposed running head of less than 65 characters. The third page should contain an abstract of about 100 words.
Style guidelines. When preparing a manuscript, authors should refer to the De Gruyter Mouton journal style sheet, especially regarding the proper format for citations and reference entries.
Tables. Tables are to be numbered consecutively with Roman numerals. Each table should be typed, doublespaced, with due regard for the proportions of the printed page. Footnotes to tables should be identified by superscript letters and placed at the bottom of the page containing the table.
Footnotes in text. Footnotes in the text should be identified by superscript numbers and listed consecutively on a separate page.
Figures. All illustrations are to be considered as figures, and each graph, drawing, or photograph should be numbered in sequence with arabic numerals. Original finished art work of all illustrations should be furnished. Photographic illustrations should not be used unless indispensable. Each figure should have a descriptive legend. Figures should be planned to fit the proportion of the printed page (11,4 x 17,8 cm = 4 3/8 x 6 7/8 inch), and care should be taken that lettering on the original is large enough to be legible after a reduction of 50 to 60%. Each figure should be identified in a margin with the name of the journal, author's name, and figure number.
Formulas and linguistic examples. Formulas, words, phrases, or sentences to which reference is made in the text should be numbered with arabic numerals; they should be referred to by citing the assigned numeral enclosed in parentheses.
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. In-text citations should be checked against listings in the References section to be sure that publication dates and the spelling of names match, and that all works cited are listed, and vice versa.
Proofs. Authors will receive electronic proofs (PDF format) for correction which must be returned by dates determined by the publishers.
Offprints. Upon publication, authors will receive electronic offprints (in PDF format). Guest editors and contributors to special issues will receive a complimentary print copy of the issue.
