Glottotheory was founded in 2008. The journal is published by De Gruyter Mouton beginning with Vol. 5.1 .

The foci of Glottotheory are:

  • observations and descriptions of all aspects of language and text phenomena including the areas of psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, dialectology, pragmatics, etc. on all levels of linguistic analysis,
  • applications of methods, models or findings from quantitative linguistics concerning problems of natural language processing, language teaching, documentation and information retrieval,
  • methodological problems of linguistic measurement, model construction, sampling and test theory,
  • epistemological issues such as explanation of language and text phenomena, contributions to theory construction, systems theory, philosophy of science.

The journal considers itself as platform for a dialogue between quantitative and qualitative linguistics.
