    Aims and Scope

    Linguistics publishes articles and book reviews in the traditional subdisciplines 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. This includes grammar, both functional and formal, with a focus on morphology, syntax, and semantics, pragmatics and discourse, phonetics and phonology, psycholinguistics, and sociolinguistics. The focus may be on one or several languages, but studies with a wide crosslinguistic (typological) coverage are also welcome. The perspective may be synchronic or diachronic. Linguistics also publishes up to two special issues a year in these areas, for which it welcomes proposals.

    Article formats
    Articles, Book reviews, Replies

    Book reviews are normally published by invitation. Reviews are of two types: a critical discussion of one book (up to 4000 words) and lengthier review articles covering one or more books, which will be treated as articles and thus peer reviewed.
