Journal of Linguistics (JL) has as its goal to publish articles that make a clear contribution to current debate in all branches of theoretical linguistics. The journal also provides an excellent survey of recent linguistics publications, with around thirty book reviews in each volume and regular review articles on major works marking important theoretical advances.


’The Journal of Linguistics has accompanied me from the start of my career in linguistics. It has consistently succeeded in combining empirical rigorousness with theoretical insight. It has something for everyone who sets high standards for linguistic research.’ Bernard Comrie, Director, Department of Linguistics, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, and Distinguished Professor of Linguistics, University of California Santa Barbara

’Three times a year JL releases the very best in linguistic analysis; the articles and reviews are consistently outstanding: rich in data, chock-full of theoretical insights, and refreshingly broad-minded in terms of theoretical persuasion.’ Cedric Boeckx, Catalan Institute for Advanced Studies (ICREA) and Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona
