Focus and Scope

An academic journal for articles in general and applied linguistics. The journal particularly favours work which offers and original contribution and an independent viewpoint. It does not impose limitations in terms of methodology or genre or support a particular linguistic school, instead it wlecomes new research which furthers the understanding of language. Authors are encouraged to submit cutting edge articles from their particular field but which are as far as possible accessible to readers with a general foundation in linguistics.

Buckingham Journal of Language and Linguistics is the successor to the three journals of the 'JLL Project':
