FYI: Language and Linguistics in Melansesia Archives

Author: John M Clifton

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

FYI Body: The complete and entire archive of the journal Language and Linguistics
in Melanesia (and its predecessor Kivung) is now available online at
www.langlxmelanesia.com! We hope that this invaluable resource will be
welcomed by researchers and students of language worldwide.

Language and Linguistics in Melanesia (originally Kivung) is a peer-
reviewed linguistic journal which has historically provided an effective
forum for linguistic thought in Melanesia and the wider South Pacific
region. LLM Online seeks to publish original articles dealing with the
languages of Papua New Guinea and Melanesia. It is equally concerned
with the regional creole languages, and with the application of linguistic
research to language teaching.
