Journal of English Linguistics

One of the few linguistics journals dedicated to presenting primarily

empirical work, the Journal of English Linguistics is now being published

by Sage Periodicals Press, a leading international publisher of scholarly

books and journals in the social sciences.

The Editors, William A. Kretzschmar, Jr., and Charles F. Meyer,

continue to invite submissions on the modern and historical periods of the

English language. The Journal of English Linguistics normally prints

synchronic and diachronic studies on subjects from Old and Middle English,

to modern English grammar, corpus linguistics, and dialectology. Other

topics, for example, from language contact, to pidgins/creoles, or

stylistics are acceptable if the article keeps its focus on the English

language. Articles normally range from 10 to 25 pages in typescript (up

to about 50Kb on disk). Submission to the Journal of English Linguistics

implies that your article hasn't been simultaneously submitted to other

journals or previously published elsewhere.

As a new feature beginning with the first Sage issue, Volume 24,

the Journal of English Linguistics will publish Special Issues (monographs

or topical collections of articles appropriate to the journal that are up

to approximately 100 printed pages). These Special Issues should treat

methodology or present results of model studies. All methodological

issues should be fully illustrated with particular examples from empirical

research, and should present documentation complete enough for readers

themselves to use the methods described. Model studies should fully

describe data acquisition and analysis, as well as present detailed

results and conclusions. Proposals for Special Issues of the Journal of

English Linguistics should be sent to the Editor.

The journal will continue to review titles in general and historical

linguistics, language variation, sociolinguistics, and dialectology for an

international audience. Unsolicited reviews cannot be considered. Books

for review and correspondence regarding reviews should be sent to the


All submissions should be prepared according to The Chicago Manual of

Style, 14th ed. Submissions are juried. Send all MSS to the Editor:

provide a textfile produced by any common IBM-compatible word processor,

on diskette or via electronic mail (Mac users should submit a pure ASCII

file), plus two copies of a formatted printout. All other editorial

correspondence should be addressed to the Editor.
