Dear All

INTRODUCING THE SOUTH AFRICAN JOURNAL OF LINGUISTICS (SAJL)

I am writing to introduce to you the SOUTH AFRICAN JOURNAL OF 
LINGUISTICS, a scientific publication of the LINGUISTIC SOCIETY OF
SOUTHERN AFRICA. The SOUTH AFRICAN JOURNAL OF LINGUISTICS is not a
new journal. It was first published in 1982. However, as a result of 
the years of apartheid (1948-1994) and the sanctions then imposed 
against it by the world community, the distribution of this journal 
has been very limited. It is not an exaggeration to say that the 
SOUTH AFRICAN JOURNAL OF LINGUISTICS is not well known in most 
academic circles around the world. This message is intended to 
bridge this gap.

The SOUTH AFRICAN JOURNAL OF LINGUISTICS is a forum for research into
the languages of Southern Africa - including indigenous languages,
Afrikaans, and English. It publishes a wide range of original
contributions on any core areas of linguistics (e.g. syntax, 
phonology, semantics, socio- and sociolinguistics, etc) relating to
the languages of South Africa and the rest of Africa.

Journal articles are generally in English, though occasionally 
articles in other languages including Afrikaans are published 
with full summary in English. Review articles, short research 
articles as well as book reviews are also welcome.
