New Journal 'Language, Interaction and Acquisition / Langage, Interaction et Acquisition'
(LIA) is now published by John Benjamins
LIA is a bilingual English-French journal that publishes original theoretical and empirical
research of high scientific quality at the forefront of current debates concerning language
acquisition. It covers all facets of language acquisition among different types of learners and
in diverse learning situations, with particular attention to oral speech and/or to signed
languages. Topics include the acquisition of one or more foreign languages, of one or more
first languages, and of sign languages, as well as learners’ use of gestures during speech; the
relationship between language and cognition during acquisition; bilingualism and situations
of linguistic contact - for example pidginisation and creolisation.
LIA is the direct descendant of the French-speaking journal AILE Acquisition et Interaction
en Langue Etrangère. From 2008 on, after the brutal and premature disappearance of Aile ‘s
founding father, Clive Perdue, a smooth transition to the new journal was first established
during the year 2009 with the publication of two numbers under the name AILE...LIA. The
bilingual nature of LIA aims at reaching readership in a wide international community,
while simultaneously continuing to attract intellectual and linguistic resources stemming
from multiple scientific traditions in Europe, thereby remaining faithful to its original
French anchoring. It will be up to the editorial team to ensure that both languages are well
represented from year to year.
As of 2010 LIA will appear twice a year with John Benjamins Publishing. LIA publishes
thematic issues, edited by one or more coordinators that are submitted either spontaneously
or in response to large calls that will be open for the international community. Before
publication all articles are blind-reviewed by two or more referees. Articles within each
number can be in French or in English and are accompanied by abstracts in both languages.
Different topics within the domain of language acquisition will rotate as much as possible
between first and second language acquisition, as well as between speech and sign languages
or gestures. Some issues may also touch on the interrelations among these areas and/or on
topics that cut across all of them. LIA also proposes two other entries for shorter
publications: reviews of recently published books and critical articles and replies.
LIA is addressed to all researchers and advanced students concerned with diverse situations
of language acquisition. It is organized in such a way as to represent as widely as possible a
great variety of topics in this vast research area. It is edited by a committee composed of
three Editors, Maya Hickmann a (Chief-Editor), Daniel Véronique, and Marianne Gullberg,
assisted by three co-Editors: Dominique Bassano, Sandra Benazzo, and Marion Blondel.
This team regularly consults two boards, an Editorial Board and an Advisory Board,
comprising some of the most prestigious members of the community in the domain of
LIA invites submissions on relevant topics. Please contact the journal’s
