Welcome to eLanguage's journal section. Below you'll find an overview of all publications which are a part of the eLanguage family.
CONSTRUCTIONS offers a forum for linguistic research concerned with the structure, use, function, and development of 'constructions' in language and linguistics. The journal aims at a balanced integration of both notional, informal approaches to constructions in general and more formal treatments, as for example, within the framework of construction grammar. One of the long-term goals is to establish contact between researchers from various perspectives. The term 'construction' as understood in this journal is deliberately chosen to have a broad extension and not be limited to any specific definition or linguistic orientation. Constructions is not restricted to any particular language or language family, and aims at combining theoretical, empirical, and applied issues.
Dialogue & Discourse
Dialogue & Discourse is the first international journal dedicated exclusively to work that deals with language "beyond the single sentence", in discourse (i.e., text, monologue) and dialogue. The journal adopts an interdisciplinary perspective, accepting work from Linguistics, Computer Science, Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, and other associated fields with an interest in formally, technically, empirically or experimentally rigorous approaches. We are committed to ensuring the highest editorial standards and rigorous peer-review of all submissions, while granting open access to all interested readers.
Journal of Experimental Linguistics
(a description will be added shortly)
Journal of Historical Syntax
The aim of the Journal of Historical Syntax is to present theoretically-informed papers dealing with any aspect of historical syntax, whether diachronic change or the synchronic description of historical language states. Papers that combine philological expertise with insights from linguistic theory are particularly welcome, though no particular theory or framework will be given precedence.
Journal of Mesoamerican Languages and Linguistics
The goal of the Journal of Mesoamerican Languages and Linguistics (JMLL) is to contribute to the documentation of Mesoamerican languages, many of which are endangered, as well as to their historical, theoretical, and typological analysis. Some topics that the Editorial Board of this journal hopes to develop further, due to the dearth of relevant publications in the past, include the following: Mesoamerican sociolinguistics (with its potential for elucidating aspects related to language socialization and language endangerment), the history of Mesoamerican linguistics, and the study of indigenous sign languages (or related systems). Other topics that are encouraged include: the linguistic structure of indigenous writing systems and texts (from any time period), and possible historical relationships (whether by common descent or contact) between Mesoamerican languages and non-Mesoamerican languages - not to mention further research on the nature of Mesoamerica as a linguistic area.
Linguistic Issues in Language Technology
Linguistic Issues in Language Technology (LiLT) is a new open-access journal that focusses on relationships between linguistic insights, which can prove valuable to language technology, and language technology, which can enrich linguistic research. The Editorial Board of LiLT believes that, in conjunction with machine learning and statistical techniques, deeper and more sophisticated models of language and speech are needed to make significant progress in newly emerging areas of computational language analysis. LiLT provides a forum for such work. LiLT takes an eclectic view on methodology. Submissions should be sent electronically to Annie Zaenen (email@example.com). LiLT is hosted externally by CSLI Publications: http://csli-publications.stanford.edu/LiLT/index.html
In August 2012, we became part of Language, the flagship journal of the Linguistic Society of America.

LSA Annual Meeting Extended Abstracts
The LSA Annual Meeting Extended Abstracts (ExtAbs) are detailed abstracts based on presentations given at the LSA Annual Meeting. They are published after the meeting in an Open Access format on eLanguage.net, the LSA's electronic publishing platform.
NOTE: extended abstracts for the 2013 are available here.
Proceedings of SALT
The Proceedings of SALT contain articles developed from work presented at the annual Semantics and Linguistic Theory conference, North America's foremost conference devoted to natural language semantics with relevance to linguistic theory.

Papers in Pragmatics
Studies in African Linguistics
Studies in African Linguistics provides a public forum within the community of African language scholars for discourse on issues of direct concern to the field of African Linguistics. Thus, the journal seeks to publish African language data and analysis that might not find a place easily or suitably in more general journals.
