Information For Authors

Language Under Discussion welcomes well-argued contributions from linguists, philosophers, communication theorists, cognitive scientists, sociologists, literary scholars, education scholars, and scholars in any other fields that offer a fresh perspective on language – what it is, how people use it, and how it can be studied and analyzed. We also accept empirical and applied studies, provided their theoretical implications for our understanding of language are clearly stated and are more than trivial.
All authors publishing in our journal will be asked by default to join the Language Under Discussion Society. Membership is free of charge, and you can join directly here. Authors who wish to opt out of joining the society should inform the editors.
We recommend that you review the About the Journal page for the journal's section policies, as well as the Author Guidelines. Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply log in and begin the five-step process.
