    Your benefits:
    • Comprehensive overview of traditional disciplines of linguistics as well as neighboring disciplines
    • In-depth analysis of language within various subfields of linguistics
    • Ground-breaking interdisciplinary research from the language sciences
    • Rigorous peer-review

    Aims and Scope

    Linguistics publishes articles 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.
