    Aims and Scope

    The Linguistic Review publishes high-quality papers in syntax, semantics, phonology, and morphology, within a framework of Generative Grammar and related disciplines, as well as critical discussions of theoretical linguistics as a branch of cognitive psychology.

    Striving to be a platform for discussion, The Linguistic Review welcomes reviews of important new monographs in these areas, dissertation abstracts, and letters to the editor. The editor also welcomes initiatives for thematic issues with guest editors.

    The Linguistic Review is a peer-reviewed journal of international scope.

    Submission of Manuscripts

    Instructions for Authors

    1. Submitting an article for publication
    Manuscripts of articles should be in English. Authors whose native language is not English are asked to have their article carefully checked by a native speaker. Please send an anonymous electronic version (PDF format) of the article manuscript in one file as well as an anonymous abstract (max. 200 words) in a separate file to: the.linguistic.review@uconn.edu.

    2. Peer review
    The journal operates a double-blind peer review that usually takes 4 months. Submissions are sent to at least 2 reviewers.

    3. Formatting and style
    Once accepted for publication, authors are requested to submit the final version in the form of two hard copies sent to the Editor-in-Chief and, in addition, an attachment (non-PDF), conforming to journal style. If possible, one of the common wordprocessing systems or LATEX should be used.

    Please consult the De Gruyter Mouton Journal style sheet when preparing the final version of your article manuscript. Any special characters used should be labelled in one of the hard copies and clearly identified at their first occurrence. The Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to reject any articles that do not conform to the requirements.

    4. Reprint permissions
    Copies of any letters granting permission to reproduce illustrations or tables from other sources, or lengthy quoted passages, must be included with the manuscript.

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