The International Journal of Multilingualism is a scientific journal
dedicated to the study of pscyholinguistic, sociolinguistic and
educational aspects of multilingual acquisition and
multilingualism. It goes beyond bilingualism and second language
acquisition by focusing on different issues related to the acquisition
and use of additional languages as well as sociolinguistic and
educational contexts involving the use of more than two languages. The
journal is concerned with theoretical and empirical issues in
multilingualism such as early trilingualism, multilingual competence,
multilingual education, multilingual literacy, multilingual
representations in the mind or multilingual communities. It is an
interdisciplinary journal which brings together the study of phenomena
related to multilingualism which are currently studied by researchers
in linguistics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics and education.

Editorial Scope

Language Learning and Development (LL&D) is the official journal of
the Society for Language Development. The journal serves as a vehicle
for interaction among the broad community of scholars and
practitioners who investigate language learning, including language
learning in infancy, childhood, and across the lifespan; language in
both typical and atypical populations and in both native- and
second-language learning.

LL&D welcomes scholars who pursue diverse approaches to understanding
all aspects of language acquisition, including biological, social, and
cross-cultural influences, and who employ experimental, observational,
ethnographic, comparative, neuroscientific, and formal methods of

The journal is multidisciplinary and seeks to examine language
development in all of its many guises. Among the many issues LL&Dwill
explore are biological versus environmental factors in language
development; learning in humans versus animals; learning of signed
versus spoken language; computer models of learning; and how
neurotechnology and visualization of the brain inform our
understanding of language learning and development.


Scholars in psychology, linguistics, computer science, cognitive
science, education, speech and hearing sciences/communication
disorders, and anthropology will be especially interested in this
