John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce a new journal to be
published in 2011:

Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism (LAB)

Over the past few decades there has been a sharp increase in the scientific
precision and complexity of the linguistic study of bilingualism. This
journal will contribute to this general program, assuming a broad
definition of bilingualism including:

- Adult L2 acquisition
- Simultaneous child bilingualism
- Child L2 acquisition
- Adult heritage speaker competence
- L1 attrition in L2/Ln environments
- Adult L3/Ln acquisition.

Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism will provide an outlet for
cutting-edge, contemporary studies on bilingualism, exclusively from formal
linguistic and cognitive science approaches. The journal will solicit
high-quality articles of original research assuming any cognitive science
approach to understanding the mental representation of bilingual language
competence and performance, including cognitive linguistic theories,
emergentism/connectionism, generative theories, psycholinguistic and
processing accounts, and covering typical and atypical populations (e.g.,
SLI and other linguistic disorders). Four types of articles will appear in LAB.


General Research articles: 8,000-10,000 word articles that present original
empirical research pertinent to the study of cognitive-linguistic

Squibs and Research Reports: These articles should not exceed 5,000 words
and should present research on ongoing theoretical projects or subsets of
data sets making significant contributions that are time sensitive.

Epistemological Topics: these articles on topics of general epistemological
interest in the sub-disciplines that contribute research to the journal
will be between 8,000 and 12,000 words and will be by invitation only.

Spotlight issue: Annually, one Spotlight issue will be published focusing
on research of one particular language, language family or a cohort of
articles addressing the same theoretical questions within the remit of the
journal. Proposals to guest edit this issue should be no longer than 3
pages and sent to the editors.
