We are pleased to announce the launch of Spanish in Context, a new
international peer-reviewed journal published by John Benjamins. The
first issue of this biannual journal was published in March 2004 and
the second issue will be published in August 2004 (see We are
currently inviting contributions in the areas of the journal described
below for the third issue of the journal to be published in March

Spanish in Context publishes original theoretical, empirical and
methodological studies into pragmatics, variationist and interactional
sociolinguistics, sociology of language, discourse and conversation
analysis, functional contextual analyses, bilingualism, and cross and
intercultural communication with the aim of extending our knowledge of
Spanish and of these disciplines themselves. Also found in Spanish in
Context are articles on historical approaches to the contextual
Spanish fields as well as on the pragmatics of translation and areas
of applied linguistics such as first and second language acquisition,
the teaching of Spanish, and business communication.

The journal is also a home for corpus-based studies of an
interactional nature where specific instances of language use as
utterances in context are analysed. The studies will either focus on
one or more varieties of Spanish or on contrastive aspects of Spanish
and other (un)related languages.

Articles are published in English and Spanish. Papers should be
approximately 6000 words in length. They should be accompanied by an
abstract of not more than 150 words and a list of key words. Authors
should supply a brief biographical sketch. Papers should be submitted
in electronic form as to well as in one paper copy to
R. Marquez Reiter, Department of Linguistic and International Studies,
University of Surrey, Guildford GU2 7XH, Surrey, UK. The electronic
version may be on disk or it may be sent as an e-mail attachment, in
any recent version of Microsoft Word.
